TOBY KEITH HOSTS GOLF CLASSIC, BREAKS GROUND OK Kids Korral Gets Underway As Foundation Kicks Off Annual Event
(NORMAN, Okla.) The 9th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic kicks
off in the most remarkable and rewarding way yet on May 18 at the
groundbreaking of the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City. The home-away-from-home
for children and families being treated at Children's Hospital at OU Medical
Center and other nearby facilities has been the ultimate goal of the Toby Keith
Foundation and its annual event.
The 10am groundbreaking ceremony begins turning the dream into reality, and
that evening's dinner and auction will continue the tradition of strong
fundraising. Last year's classic raised $650,000, and the 2012 lineup of
auction items is even deeper.
Highlights include a trip to Africa with Pros for Africa, a Brush Creek
getaway, a Dallas Cowboys VIP package, having a menu item named for you at Toby
Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill, concerts and golf packages and exclusive
memorabilia from Coldplay, Carrie Underwood, the Rolling Stones, the Three
Stooges and, of course, Toby Keith himself.
Participants at the next day's main event hit the links with a wide range of
celebrities. Another highlight will be the Built Ford Tough Shootout, offering
a new truck to the winner. Local Seth Wadley Ford is also offering a truck
should anyone hit a hole-in-one.
Other auction items: A Day in The Life of Toby on Tour, LA Talk Show Package,
ESPYs Package with Adrian Peterson, Houston Astros Suite Package and
memorabilia from Bob Griese, Derek Jeter, Drew Brees, Cal Ripken Jr., Tim
McGraw, Aaron Rogers, Elvis, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean and Wayne Gretzky.
It's all aimed at giving sick children and their families a helping hand. For
