Double Emmy awards for Dolly
Parton was awarded the Best Community Service program trophy for her Smoky Mountains Rise telethon, which raised more than $13 million dollars for her My People Fund, to help those affected by the horrific mountain wildfires across East Tennessee last year.
The National Association of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) Midsouth also recognized the legend’s lifetime of giving back with the Governor’s Award. In her acceptance, Parton noted that she is most proud of her efforts on behalf of Dollywood, the Dollywood Foundation, including the Imagination Library, the My People Fund and Mountain Tough.
