NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Country star Toby Keith will once again hold his annual charity golf tournament to benefit families of children fighting cancer. The fourth annual event will begin with an auction and party in downtown Oklahoma City on April 27th, and continue with the golf outing the following morning.

Items expected to be auctioned off are a trip to see Keith in concert in Las Vegas, memorabilia from Garth Brooks, Sammy Hagar and Bob Seger, and sports memorabilia autographed by golfer Tiger Woods and baseball Hall of Famer Mickey Mantle.

The proceeds will benefit Ally's House, an organization named after the daughter of Keith's original bandmate Scott Webb.

Allison died in August 2003, one month before her third birthday, from a form of kidney cancer called Wilm's tumors.

Keith and his foundation have raised more than $1.1 million to benefit the charity, which he helped establish.
