Toby Keith adds to auction
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
– Toby Keith's seventh annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic is set for May 21-22 in Norman, Okla.
Keith is set to emcee the May 21 dinner and auction and golf team spots for the next day's tournament are already sold out, though tickets to the dinner are still available.
Savid Allan Coe and hard rocking metal/pop mashup band Rock Sugar will perform.
An updated roster of auction items includes dinner for 20 with Keith, four tickets to a Chicago Bears-Minnesota Vikings games with meet-and-greets with Adrian Peterson and Tommie Harris, a seven-day SeaDream Yacht vacation, a day on the set of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives with Guy Fieri and a two-day, three-night New Mexico hunting trip package.
Also up for auction will be memorabilia from Miley Cyrus, Brett Favre, Darius Rucker, Garth Brooks, Michael Phelps, Kerry Collins, Steve Young, Derek Jeter, Tom Clancy, Emmitt Smith, Greg Maddux, Maroon 5 and more.
Proceeds from the event and auction will assist severely ill children and their families through the Toby Keith Foundation, which is funding the OK Kids Korral 16-room guest lodge housing pediatric cancer patients and their families on the grounds of Oklahoma University Medical Center. With completion expected in 2012, the 30,000 sq. ft. facility will be a haven of respite for families of young children struggling through cancer treatments.

If 52-year old Toby Keith has learned anything after 20 years, it is to stick with a winning formula. Working with longtime collaborators Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford, "Drinks After Work" is chock full of blue collar ethic, humor and some heartbreak.
Most of the album is driven by big hooks and country guitar, However, Keith experiments a bit stylistically with computerized hip hop on the party anthem opener, Shut Up And Hold On, a Buffet-esque steel drum on ...
