Toby Keith Tees Off for Cancer Victims
Toby Keith has topped himself on the links. The 5th annual Toby Keith and Friends Celebrity Golf Classic raised a whopping $709,000 for Ally's House, an organization that helps Oklahoma kids with cancer and their families. That's more than the event has ever raised, adding to a five-year total of more than $2.3 million raised.
"I knew we could make a difference with Ally's House, but it really is even bigger than I'd hoped," says Keith. "We've helped a ton of families, and we're proud that we have never had to turn away an Oklahoma family that needs help."
Auction items that helped bring in the big bucks included two dinners with the country star, each selling for $35,000. A ride with Captain Sig and the Northwestern crew from the hit Discovery Channel series, 'Deadliest Catch', went for $27,500, while a cameo role in an upcoming Toby Keith video raked in $25,000.
