Dolly Parton telethon raises nearly $9 Million

(CNN)  Country music legend Dolly Parton raised nearly nine-million dollars for victims of recent wildfires in her native Sevier County, Tennessee. Her star-studded telethon aired Tuesday night on multiple networks. Even more donations are expected to come in as the telethon is re-aired. The money will provide about a thousand dollars a month for six months for each of the 13-hundred families that lost their homes in fires.
