Country singer Toby Keith held his annual celebrity golf classic with the theme again being "Denim & Diamonds." The event was held to raise money for the OK Kids Korral.
The OK Kids Korral is a 16-room guest lodge that will be at the Oklahoma University Medical Center. The Korral will house pediatric cancer patients and their families while undergoing cancer treatments. The lodge is expected to be completed in 2012.
Speaking on the amount of work and dedication it takes to bring the Korral into being, Keith said "It's slow gears turning, but it's going to be something that Oklahoma City can be really proud of when we're done with it. It's just a long battle."
The event was sold out with more than 750 people attending the dinner and auction which followed the golf event. The top prize at the auction was a private dinner with Toby Keith which went for $52,000. All in all, the event raised $650,000 for the OK Kids Korral.
