Dolly Parton was recently surprised with a check for $50,000 by Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation supporter Michael Cooper, CEO and President of GlobalDoc, Inc. Parton is the foundation’s honorary chairperson. A portion of the donation is earmarked for the Sevier County Boys & Girls Club, to aid the organization’s anti-bullying awareness efforts.
“The director was yellin’ ‘action’ all day but turns out the real action was created by our good friend Mike Cooper who came bearing the gift of $50,000 to support the good work of the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation, a cause that’s truly near and dear to my heart,” Parton said. “I had no idea Mike was coming but I told him he could surprise me like that anytime!”
Debbie Dowling, Executive Director of the Dr. Thomas Foundation; Ellen Wilhoit, Chief Administrative Officer of LeConte Medical Center; and Linda Ogle, Dr. Thomas Foundation board member, were all on hand for the presentation.
