Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company is pleased to participate in Toby Keith's Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert to be held Saturday, July 6 at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.
The star-studded lineup of performers, now being assembled, will include Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, Carrie Underwood, and Ronnie Dunn. Proceeds will benefit The United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Updates on the event and lineup will be posted at www.tobykeith.com.
For Keith, this event and the May storms that led to it are deeply personal. “I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” he says. “I know these folks and they’re resilient, but we’re going to keep helping them any way we can. I’m proud to get together with some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting these communities.”
Robert Frost has worked with Keith for years and has strong connections to the music industry. He and his insurance agency always look for ways to support disaster relief and the music industry. “The OK Twister Relief Concert is a great way to give back to the community,” said Robert Frost, President of Frost Specialty Inc. “We want to support the rebuilding of this community as we did in Nashville not too long ago. We are thrilled that 100 percent of ticket sales go to the charity.”
Frost reached out to Fireman’s Fund to provide the insurance for the event. Fireman’s Fund agreed to provide the insurance at no cost. “Fireman’s Fund is excited to participate in Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert to help those affected by the recent tornadoes,” said Lauren Bailey, vice president of entertainment at Fireman’s Fund. “As a leading insurer of country musicians and concerts, we’re honored to help make this concert a success to assist in the rebuilding and restoration of these Oklahoma communities.”
