Guy Fieri and The United Way are collaborating on a telethon fund raiser in Knoxville, Tennessee, at the Bijou Theatre. And if you are in or around Knoxville, you can be part of it.

Guy Fieri and Knoxville's radio personality Halerin Hilton Hill host a live television broadcast, September 21, 2009 starting at 7:00 p.m. The Nashville country, rock and bluegrass band KingBilly is also scheduled to perform. Local television and radio outlets broadcast the one-day fund-raising telethon.

As part of the show, Guy will show segments of "Diners, Drive-in and Dives" recorded in East Tennessee. Tickets to the live show are only $20, and proceeds will benefit the United Way.

In Knoxville, Guy visited the Pizza Palace way back in the first season of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives:
