DECATUR, Georgia — When Lil Jon was fired from the reality show “Celebrity Apprentice,” the rapper-producer fell short of the amount of money he wanted to raise for his charity.
Lil Jon’s charity thought his efforts were just enough. On Tuesday, he was honored by the United Methodist Children’s Home for raising $80,000 through his endeavors on “Celebrity Apprentice.”
The proceeds will be placed in an endowment fund to help educational opportunities and refurbish buildings at the sprawling 99-acre campus in suburban Atlanta.
Lil Jon’s initial goal was to raise $100,000, but he was satisfied with the awareness the show brought to his cause. He was among the final four contestants along with John Rich, Meat Loaf and Marlee Matlin.
Rich won the competition on Sunday, taking home $250,000 for his charity.
