Trump, surgeons hear the cry of help for teens

A teen living in a Bronx group home unable to afford a corrective foot surgery, cried out in a letter in a newspaper. Donald Trump and Joe DiMaggio’s doctor picked up the phone. “I never had a day like this in my life,” Marcus Oquendo, 17, was quoted in yesterday’s Daily News editions. “Me and Donald Trump. He wants to meet me next week,” said sports columnist Mike Lupica.

Oquendo wrote to Lupica in a letter published last Friday, explaining that he was living at home in the Catholic Guardian Society, because his mother had died and his father was in prison. He had an average of 89 in school and as a junior 6-foot-10, he plays basketball for DeWitt Clinton High.

Donald Trump the Painter for Charity

We know Donald Trump the entrepreneur. Now make way for Donald Trump the painter. Trump is the first celebrity to put brush to canvas for the Prominent People Painter Project, a fundraiser originated by German painter Adolfo. Adolfo, who began exhibiting his work at the European Gallery of Modern Art in Palm Beach this season, wants to get 50 celebrities who have never paint-ed before to paint a picture for the project — with the artist’s help, of course.

The original paintings and signed and numbered lithographs of the works will be sold to benefit the Adam Walsh Children’s Fund, a division of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Washington, D.C. “Every nickel goes to the Adam Walsh fund.” says Jesse Newman, publicist for the project. “All expenses are paid by the artist. He just gets the prestige.”

Trump painted his abstract picture in two half-hour sessions during the past couple weekends. John Walsh, founder of the Adam Walsh Children’s Fund and host of the television shows America’s Most Wanted and Final Justice, will be the second to jump in. He’s supposed to paint his picture this weekend. Other celebrities who will be invited to participate include Sean Connery. Madonna. Princess Anne and soccer star Pele.

On Thursday 16 December, a lucky contestant on the NBC-TV phenomenon “The Apprentice” will be given a one in a lifetime opportunity when Donald Trump utters the words we’ve all been waiting for: “You’re hired!” Fans of the hit series may not be able to work for Mr. Trump, but there’s still a way to get close to the boardroom. “The Apprentice” partnered with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation to list the show’s props and memorabilia in a charitable auction, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the Elizabeth Glaser Foundation for Pediatric AIDS.

“Both Donald Trump and I strongly believe that investing in charitable causes is just good business,” said Mark Burnett, executive producer of “The Apprentice,” and board member of the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation. “We are so pleased to offer memorabilia from the show to raise funds for such a worthy cause. Each time an apprentice bids and memorabilia, they ensure a healthier future for children around the world. To date, the partnership has raised more than $200,000 for the Foundation.”

Tension, back-stabbing, big business tie-ins and celebrities have made “The Apprentice” one of the most talked-about shows on television. This season, 18 competitors used their business skills, intelligence and street intelligence to compete for the grand prize-a $250,000 year job as president of one of Donald Trump’s companies. “Apprentice” fans, here’s your opportunity to get a step closer to the winner of the grand prize-and show your negotiating skills for a great cause. The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation will benefit from all proceeds.
