How much would you pay for a date with Dolly Parton? An anonymous donor will ante up $138,000 for an overnight stay at the superstar’s high-rise hideaway in downtown Nashville.
“I haven’t been on a blind date since high school,” Dolly tells the Knoxville News Sentinel. “I’m truly delighted beyond belief.”
The mystery bidder gets to bring six friends and will enjoy a catered dinner and breakfast with the entertainment icon, though the auction stipulates she won’t be staying the night. Dolly will also take her guests on a tour of her Nashville properties but will stop just short of showing them her private home, to preserve the privacy of her notoriously reclusive husband.
The money goes to medical care in Dolly’s home county through the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation, named for the doctor who delivered her.
