Toby Keith & Friends Raise Nearly $ 1 Million for Children & Families
Shut Up And Hold On Tour Presented by Ford F-Series. But prior to heading out, Keith devoted a weekend, as he does every year, to the Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, which raised more than $ 950,000 last month.

More than 800 attended the opening dinner, musical event and silent auction, with 44 teams participating in the golf tournament during the May 16-17 event. As is the case each year, auction items resulted in some of the biggest contributions to the event's fundraising total. Top bids included:
  • Dinner with Toby Keith at the OK Kids Korral: $ 52,000
  • Bull Elk Hunt at Express UU Bar Ranch: $ 37,500
  • Arnold Palmer/Jack Nicklaus Memorabilia piece: $ 35,000
  • Toby Keith Behind the Scenes Experience: $ 30,000
  •  Brush Creek Ranch Getaway: $ 30,000
  •  African Safari: $ 25,000
All proceeds benefit the Toby Keith Foundation and its mission of encouraging the health and happiness of pediatric cancer patients, primarily through its work with the OK Kids Korral. A cost-free, convenient and comfortable home for patients and their families seeking treatment at The Children's Hospital at OU Medical Center, OK Kids Korral opened in January of this year.
