Congratulations to country music superstar Toby Keith! The Oklahoma native paid back his home state with a huge donation for the Oklahoma Kids Korral. The money was raised through his 11th annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic event. His golf tournament was attended by over 800 eager participants making up 44 teams. The event also held a silent auction, which ended up bringing in the big money.
