Smokies telethon brings in $200K

Written by 

The 20th annual Friends Across the Mountains telethon brought in $200,000 for Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park last week. The dollars will go toward the nearly $1.6 million the park needs this year to protect black bears, heal hemlock trees and preserve historic buildings. Since 1995, the telethon has raised $3 million to support the park. 

Online donations are still open at www.friendsofthesmokies.org
