The $52,000 Dollar Dinner
I never get tired of talking about how great the fans who support country music are, or the artists who undoubtedly give so much of their time and talent to help those less fortunate. Case in point, the eighth annual [lastfm link_type=""]Toby Keith[/lastfm] and Friends Golf Classic.
The event helped to raise over $650,000 to support the construction of the OK Kids Corral for pediatric cancer patients and their families near the OU Medical Center Children’s Hospital. Now here’s where the dinner came in. The top auction item included a private dinner with Toby Keith that went for $52,000 each to the top two bidders. BRAVO. Some of the other auction items included an all-inclusive elk hunt with private jet transportation for $30,000. And none of the live auction items went for less than seven-grand. Sure does make you feel good inside.
