The Smoky Mountain Opry Theater in Pigeon Forge will give out toys to Sevier County children affected by the wildfires.

On Sunday, toys will be provided for every child and each family will receive a snack box.

The Fee/Hedrick theaters are partnering with Hearts with Hands Disaster Relief, Asheville, N.C., First Baptist Church of Sevierville, Tenn., and Sevier County Economic Development Council, Sevierville, Tenn., to host this event in a large tent outside of the theater on Sunday, Dec. 18th from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m.

“Since we are performing our Christmas shows in all three theaters and have entertainers who want to help from The Comedy Barn, Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Feud and The Smoky Mountain Opry Theaters, this Sunday is the perfect time for us to share in this special day with Sevier County families,” said David Fee, president and chief executive officer of Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group and co-owner of The Smoky Mountain Opry™ Theater. “We are truly honored to host this event and deeply touched by the overwhelming support. The abundance of toys that have been donated to give to the children who have been displaced has been phenomenal. We are in the entertainment business to ‘Sell Fun’ but on this special day we are going to ‘Give Fun!,’”

Santa will also be there with his elves!
