This past weekend, Dolly Parton announced another way in which she will help the Gatlinburg victims who were affected by the wildfires, reported MusicRow magazine.
Parton, a native of the area whose Dollywood theme park was threatened by the blaze, is organizing a telethon taking place on Dec. 13 in Nashville.
“I know there are a lot of great events being planned to help the people of East Tennessee, however, I am planning a telethon to support the ‘My People Fund’ where 100% of the money will help those who lost their homes in the wildfire. I am planning on doing this on Dec. 13th in Nashville, Tennessee,” says Parton.
All of the proceeds for the telethon will go to Dolly’s “My People Fund “ initiative with no money taken from the telethon effort to cover administration cost.
