Toby Keith recently held his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, which raised $950,000 for Keith’s OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for pediatric cancer patients and their families in Oklahoma City. More than 800 people attended the tournament’s opening dinner, concert and silent auction, with 44 teams taking part in the golf tournament.

A dinner with Keith at OK Kids Korral was auctioned off for $52,000, while a Toby Keith Behind the Scenes Experience went for $30,000. An African safari was auctioned off for $25,000. OK Kids Korral officially opened its doors in November 2013 after 10 years of planning and fundraising.

Keith’s signature alcoholic beverage, Wild Shot, was served at the event at a portable watering hole, which has become a staple at his shows. Keith is currently headlining his Shut Up And Drive Tour.
