Coast Guard Foundation picked as ‘Celebrity Apprentice’ charity

The Coast Guard Foundation said Sig Hansen, captain of the F/V Northwestern and star of the Discovery Channel’s “Deadliest Catch,” selected the foundation as his designated charity on NBC’s “Celebrity Apprentice.”

The next season of the show, which begins airing Jan. 4, includes 16 celebrity contestants who try to raise money and awareness for their chosen charities. Every week, the contestants work in teams to compete in business-driven tasks to win challenges. The winner will deliver a $250,000 check to his or her designated charity.

“We’re honored that Capt. Sig Hansen has chosen to benefit the Coast Guard Foundation as his charity of choice for the 2015 season of ‘Celebrity Apprentice,’ ” Coast Guard Foundation president Anne Brengle said in a statement. “As a fisherman working in the difficult, dangerous conditions of the Bering Sea, Sig knows firsthand how important the men and women of the Coast Guard are to mariners at sea.”
