Toby Hits It Long And Straight

Toby Keith was in 'Denim and Diamonds' for the Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic event. The themed fundraiser, raised money to build temporary housing for pediatric cancer patients and their families.

Proceeds will be donated to the OK Kids Korral, a foundation started by the Okie. The event has been a staple of Toby's humanitarian efforts for the past eight years.

Sugarland, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Jimmy Buffett have all offered concert experiences for the auction block. Miranda Lambert also donated four autographed bottles of her private label wine.

"We are doing our best to address issues that arise while a child is in treatment, such as weakened immune systems and sensitivity to light," explains Keith on his involvement with the cause. "More than anything, we want it to be a home of inspiration, encouragement and hope."

Toby's involvement with pediatric cancer began after suffering the loss of Allison Webb, the daughter of Keith's friend and original bandmate Scott Webb.
