SHOW DOG/NASHVILLE artist TOBY KEITH held his 5th annual TOBY KEITH & FRIENDS CELEBRITY GOLF CLASSIC last weekend (6/6-6/7) in NORMAN, OK and raised $709,000 for ALLY'S HOUSE. Top items in the silent auction included a cameo in an upcoming TOBY video, which sold for $25,000, and the chance to ride with Captain SIG and the crew of the NORTHWESTERN from the DISCOVERY CHANNEL hit series "Deadliest Catch," which brought in $27,500.
ALLY'S HOUSE is a local non-profit that helps children with cancer and their families. The charity was created in memory of ALLISON WEBB, two-year-old daughter of TOBY's band member SCOTT WEBB, who died of kidney cancer. Over the past five years, TOBY KEITH & FRIENDS have raised over $2.3 million.
