(Las Vegas, NV) — A Las Vegas entertainer is heading back to the boardroom.

Penn Jillette will once again play for Las Vegas charity Opportunity Village on NBC’s “All-Star Celebrity Apprentice,” now in its 13th installment.  The series is scheduled to begin airing in March 2013.

“Opportunity Village was Elvis’ favorite charity and it sure is one of mine.  I was so happy to help them out last season, that when Celebrity Apprentice asked me to come back for the All-Star season, the second ‘yes’ I said was for my charity to be OV,” said Jillette.

Opportunity Village is a not-for-profit organization that serves people within our community with significant intellectual disabilities, to improve their lives and the lives of their families.

Last season, Jillette was on “The Celebrity Apprentice” and won a task that allowed him to donate $40,000 to Opportunity Village, providing vocational training for hundreds of clients. Additionally, when Jillette was “fired,” Caesars Foundation donated $250,000 to the charity, the amount that Opportunity Village would have been given if Jillette was “hired.”
