Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountains Rise telethon was televised last Tuesday and it was a night that went down in History. I mean she raised over $9 Million dollars for the victims of the East Tennessee wildfires. She had people on the telethon like Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire, Chris Stapleton, Hank Williams Jr., Cyndi Lauper, Amy Grant, Alison Krauss and many more. So I’m sure if you missed it, you’re pretty bummed! LOL but the good news is you’ll have the chance to catch it again on Monday night.
getTV will re-air the 3-hour benefit for The Dollywood Foundation’s My People Fund, which is donating $1000 a month for the next half-year to the more than 1300 families that lost their primary residences in the raging East Tennessee wildfires late last month.
At last check, the star-studded telethon has raised more than $9 million, with those affected getting their first checks this week.
And the best part is… you can STILL donate while watching the rerun… so it’ll be like you didn’t miss a thing!
