All For Charity!
Country crooner Collin Raye is tapped to host the 17th annual Academy of Country Music Bill Boyd Celebrity Golf Classic in California in October. Last year's event raised several thousand dollars for a variety of charities including the T.J. Martell Foundation for cancer, AIDS and leukemia research, the Los Angeles Shriners Hospital for crippled children, the National Music Foundation and the Bill Boyd Memorial Fund. More than $1 million has been raised since the event began. PLUS! Country hit-maker Toby Keith's Tornado Relief Jam is taking shape. The singer's fellow Oklahomans Ronnie Dunn of Brooks & Dunn, Bryan White and Wade Hayes will be among the performers at the all-day concert for Tuesday, June 29th at the Zoo Amphitheater in Oklahoma City. All proceeds from the show will go to the victims of the May 3rd disaster. More acts are expected to sign on for the fundraiser.
