A few hundred close friends joined Country superstar TOBY KEITH for the 4th ANNUAL TOBY KEITH & FRIENDS GOLF CLASSIC in OKLAHOMA recently (4/27-28). The two-day event featured a dinner, silent auction and celebrity golf tournament and raised over $500,000 to benefit ALLY'S HOUSE CHARITY.
One group of golfers paid $31,000 to have KEITH as their celebrity team member, and two bidders raised a total of $58,000 for a package that includes dinner with KEITH, former DALLAS COWBOYS coach BARRY SWITZER and OKLAHOMA Governor BRAD HENRY at KEITH's I LOVE THIS BAR AND GRILL, and, just to sweeten the deal, KEITH threw in dinner for everyone at his home.
