Toby Keith Kicking Off Annual Charity Event With Special Ceremony
Toby Keith is kicking off his Oklahoma fundraiser in a different way this year. The country star will launch the 9th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic this Friday morning with the groundbreaking ceremony for the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City. Toby will then host the dinner and auction portion of the benefit Friday night. Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood, and Jason Aldean are among the country stars who have donated items for the auction, while participants can also make bids on a trip to Africa, a "Houston Astros Suite Package," an "L.A. Talk Show Package," and other unique opportunities and celebrity memorabilia. On Saturday, Keith will host the golfing portion of the event. Keith has spent the past several years raising money for the OK Kids Korral. The Korral will provide young cancer patients receiving treatment in the Oklahoma City area the chance to spend time with their families away from the hospital. The singer is funding the facility through his Toby Keith Foundation.
