Knoxville Stars Dancing For Donations

Allison Fulmer, way to go! The UT graduate student is leading the Dancing with the Knoxville Stars cast in donations solicited for the Feb. 17 event's beneficiary, East Tennessee Children's Hospital Association, even though organizers originally asked her father Phil. "He has terrible lineman knees, so he put my name in the hat," she explains on her donation page. Five other contestants are also representing strongly, and there's still plenty of time to vote and donate (and get info) at
