Greene County News

DAYTON — Bill Rancic, winner of The Apprentice & star of Giuliana & Bill, will be the featured speaker at the 16th annual Ribbon of Hope Luncheon at 11:45 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18 at Sinclair Community College’s Ponitz Center, 444 W. Third St., Building 12.

In his many roles as a successful entrepreneur, author, speaker, and philanthropist, Bill Rancic embraces life with his wife, Giuliana, an entertainment journalist, fashion and beauty expert, trusted television personality, and cancer survivor. Bill burst onto the national scene when he was hired by Donald Trump as the winner of the first season of NBC’s breakthrough program The Apprentice.

Today, he is one of the most sought after motivational speakers on the subject of entrepreneurship and business, sharing his entertaining lessons that vary from a pancake business he started with his grandmother at age 10 to his current multi-million-dollar real estate enterprise in Chicago.

Highly engaged in charitable activities, Bill has completed more than half a dozen trips to Haiti to build homes for earthquake victims, and he is an active board member for the Mercy Home for Boys and Girls.

Bill will talk about his wife Giuliana’s cancer journey and how men can support the fight against cancer.

The luncheon also features health and wellness exhibits and boutique vendors. Doors open at 10 a.m. Luncheon registration begins at 11 a.m. Parking is free for luncheon guests. Registration is limited. For more information or to register, visit
