Toby Keith's annual celebrity charity golf tournament last month raised a massive $600,000.

Held in Norman, Oklahoma, the Toby Keith and friends Golf Classic raised money for the OK Kids Korral, a 16-room guest lodge, which will house pediatric cancer patients and their families on the grounds of Oklahoma University Medical Center.

The golf tournament also featured a concert which included performances by David Allan Coe and Phil Vassar, as well as an auction that featured items donated by Miley Cyrus, Garth Brooks, Darius Rucker, Michael Phelps and Brett Farve. Two people paid $28,000 each for the chance to have dinner with Keith.

The annual event has raised $3 million for children’s cancer in Oklahoma over the last seven years.
