Telethon rallies funding support for Smokies

Written by 

Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park raised $192,157 last week during the annual “Friends Across the Mountains” telethon broadcast on WLOS locally as well as stations in Tennessee.

“As far as I am aware, the Smokies is the only national park that is fortunate enough to have its own two-state telethon.

Mast General Store was among the telethon sponsors.
