Lacheys on ‘Price is Right’ for Camp Joy

by John Kiesewetter

Drew and Nick Lachey on "The Price Is Right" airing Feb. 18 on CBS.

Nick and Drew Lachey will play alongside contestants on CBS’ “The Price is Right” next week during “Celebrity Week.”
The brothers will be on the Drew Carey game show next Monday (11 a.m., Channel 12) playing for Camp Joy, a nonprofit camp in eastern Warren County about 40 miles northeast of downtown Cincinnati.  Drew Lachey worked summers at Camp Joy while attending the School for Creative & Performing Arts.
The brothers  will each participate in six of the show’s popular games as they help contestants get spots in the Showcase. The Lacheys also get to spin the famous wheel for charity as well as present special showcases full of their own personal favorite prizes.
CBS says that the celebrity contestants combined raised more than $250,000 for charity, and one of the celebrities manages to break last year’s individual record (Snoop Dogg’s $72,585 for the Snoop Youth Football League).
The Lacheys will be followed by NeNe Leakes from “Real Housewives of Atlanta” on Tuesday; Sharon Osbourne on Wednesday; Charles Barkley on Thursday; and Demi Lovato on Friday.
