Vince Sorrenti chooses Cancer Council NSW for Celebrity Apprentice

February 2012

Cancer Council NSW (CCNSW) is proud to announce that Australian comedian, Vince Sorrenti, will be starring in the second season of Channel Nine’s Celebrity Apprentice and has nominated CCNSW as his chosen charity.

Vince has been a partner of CCNSW for many years and has generously donated his time and services as the Master of Ceremonies of the Cancer Council POSH Ball since its inception in 2000. The show commences filming in mid-January and is scheduled to air later this year.

“It is my pleasure to be involved with Cancer Council NSW and wish them every success in their fundraising and research. I hope one day to look back nostalgically on a time when there was no easy cure for cancer,” Vince said.

“We’re so proud Vince has chosen to support Cancer Council NSW,” said CCNSW CEO, Dr Andrew Penman.

“Cancer does not discriminate. One in two Australians will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Through Vince’s support and appearance on Celebrity Apprentice, we have the opportunity to shine the light on cancer to all people across the nation,” he said.

“We wish Vince all the very best. No matter what happens on the show, he’ll always be a winner in our eyes. I hope you can join me in cheering him on when the program airs later this year.”

Vince will once again donate his services as Master of Ceremonies at the Cancer Council POSH Ball on Saturday, 17th March at the Westin Sydney. The POSH Ball is held each year where 750 guests and 200 generous sponsors get together to raise money for important cancer research and support services.

Over the past 13 years, POSH has raised more than $8 million. Tickets are still available for private tables at $250 pp. For more information, please email jennym@nswcc.org.au or call 02 9334 1967.
