Toby Keith, along with the Toby Keith Foundation board and advisory council members, as well as several hundred invited guests, celebrated the grand opening of his OK Kids Korral earlier this week (Nov. 21).

Among the speakers helping open the cost-free home for children with cancer were Joey Root, President of First Liberty Bank and advisory council member; Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett; Dr. Terrance Stull, Chairman of Pediatrics at OU Health Sciences Center; and Tim and Elijah Fowler, donor and pediatric cancer survivor.

“OK Kids Korral is like Ritz Carlton meets Disney World and I couldn’t be more excited to open the doors to children with cancer,” said Keith.

The design and building team consisted of Manhattan Construction and Crafton Tull while Rees and Associates helped with the interior furnishings. The 25,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art Korral has 16 rooms with 12 overnight suites and four daytime suites, a neutropenic wing for children with weakened immune systems, a gourmet kitchen, an Oklahoma Route 66 indoor play room, an outdoor playground, game room, a family resource room, laundry room, theater and a reflection room.
