Dolly Parton has teamed up with The Grand Ole Opry to raise money for the Opry Trust Fund benefitting music industry professionals including touring and music industry professionals most affected by the current COVID-19 pandemic.
Dolly posted to Twitter this morning (2/10), “I’ve partnered with the Opry Trust Fund to auction off an autographed guitar to celebrate the @opry’s 95th Anniversary! Learn more here: http://opryent.co/3oxMd2O.”
Established in 1965, The Opry Trust Fund provides financial assistance to music industry professionals during their time of extraordinary need to cover certain expenses, including medical bills, rent or mortgage bills and utility payments. The need is greater than ever as the music industry continues to be one of the most deeply impacted by the ongoing crisis.
Parton has been a long-time supporter of the Opry Trust Fund, and has once again teamed up with the Opry to raise money to help her fellow music industry professionals by donating this custom autographed Dolly Parton / Opry 95th Anniversary guitar. All the money raised will go toward the Opry Trust fund, which has distributed more than $2 million since its inception.
