publish date: 2016-12-06
Following the devastating wildfires in East Tennessee, Dolly Parton has announced that she will host a Dec. 13 telethon in Nashville to raise money for her My People Fund. The country icon set up the fund to provide $1,000 each month to families in Sevier County, Tennessee, which was devastated by the Great Smoky Mountain wildfires that recently raged though the area.
“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,” the singer said, according to Music Row.
