How does a week at Toby Keith ’s Cabo beach house sound? The getaway for five couples to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is typically the most popular silent auction item at the Oklahoma native’s annual Denim & Diamonds gala to raise money for his foundation.
Other big ticket live auction offerings include a stay at Wyoming’s Brush Creek Resort, two weeklong tickets to all four of golf’s majors plus The Players, African Safari, an autographed Eagles guitar and an “Outlaw” Tribute Concert poster celebrating the music of Waylon Jennings signed by event performers including Keith, Willie Nelson, Lee Ann Womack, Eric Church, Alison Krauss, Jessi Colter, Jamey Johnson, Chris Stapleton and Shooter Jennings.
Silent auction items include signed memorabilia from Willie Nelson, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Tiger Woods, Dick Butkus, Derek Jeter, Phil Mickelson and Brett Favre.
Concert tickets will be up for bid from Miranda Lambert, Jason Aldean, George Lopez and Jimmy Buffett. Other offerings include his-and-her Apple watches and four tickets to the 2017 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. Mobile bidding will be available to attendees for the first time through a partnership with GiveSmart.
Saturday’s day of golf will again include the Built Ford Tough Shootout, where the winner will drive off with a new truck.
The Friday night event is also the kickoff for his 13th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, which will take place June 3 and 4 at Belmar Golf Club and Riverwind Casino in Norman, Oklahoma.
The entire weekend helps fund the OK Kids Korral, a home-away-from-home for pediatric cancer patients at Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center and their families.
