Dolly Parton Hosts Telethon for Wildfire Victims

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Country icon Dolly Parton’s home and businesses at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park were all spared from deadly wildfires last month.

But many were not that lucky.

That’s why the country star decided to host a telethon to raise money for those affected.

Parton says the fires could not have come at a worse time of the year.

“I’ll get to have Christmas with my family in those warm cozy houses, but we know that there are so many this time of year that are not going to get to have Christmas in a warm cozy house because they are gone, So that’s why it is so important that we do what we can. But I am sure I will be devastated when I see some of the stuff,” said Dolly Parton.
