Toby Keith‘s annual Golf Classic event raised $664,000 this past weekend for the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City, which will provide a place for children and their families to stay while the kids receive treatment at OU Medical Center Children’s Hospital. The money raised this year surpassed last year’s total by $14,000. Over the weekend, Toby also helped break ground on the facility.
“There’s not much in my world that’s more gratifying or important than helping these families,” Toby says. “Turning dirt on this project is a big moment for me and a lot of other people who’ve been a part of making it happen.”
An autographed piece of Three Stooges memorabilia and a signed Rolling Stones guitar were among the big-ticket items at a charity auction that was also part of the weekend event. Three items from Toby raised an additional $30,000.
