WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE Celebrity Week to Feature Mo'Nique, Deen, Marin & More

For the third consecutive year, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire," with Emmy Award-winning host Meredith Vieira, joins forces with the Alzheimer's Association (ALZ) to present "Celebrity Week," airing September 17-21 in recognition of World Alzheimer's Month. "Millionaire" money raised throughout the week will all be donated to ALZ. Check local listings or go to http://www.millionairetv.com for time and channel.

Meredith Vieira said that being able to donate to ALZ each year means the world to her because of her personal connection to the disease. "My dad passed away from Alzheimer's and my brother, Steve, developed early onset Alzheimer's, so it's a very personal issue to me," she said. "I realize, sharing my story, how many other people have similar stories. So to do anything to help get rid of this disease – I'm on board," she concluded. 

This year's celebrities include OSCAR® and Golden Globe Award-winning actress Mo'Nique (airing 9/17), America's favorite cook and best-selling author Paula Deen (airing 9/18 & 9/19), comedian and actor Cheech Marin (airing 9/19 & 9/20), television icon Jackée (airing 9/20) and Tony Dovolani from "Dancing with the Stars" (airing 9/21). In the past two years, celebrities who have appeared on "Millionaire" helped raise almost $600,000 for ALZ, including "Law & Order's" Anthony Anderson who single-handedly won $250,000 in 2011. Each participating celebrity is guaranteed to win at least $10,000 for ALZ.

All week host Meredith Vieira, participating celebrities and the studio audiences will wear purple, the official color of ALZ. Friday, September 21 is Alzheimer's Action Day, and people are being encouraged to "go purple" that day and show support for the 35-million people worldwide and their families who are affected by dementia.
