Keady, S. Miami Kiwanis form winning team

Golf outing and auction help raise scholarship money for Mac students.

Peru — Former Purdue men’s basketball coach Gene Keady still can command a room.

Saturday afternoon, the South Miami Kiwanis Club hosted the second annual Pat Keady Memorial Golf Outing at Rock Hollow Golf Club. The outing, which also included a silent auction, raised $15,152 for scholarships in the name of Gene Keady’s wife, Pat, who passed away in 2009 after a lengthy battle with cancer.

“The next prize is an autographed basketball by coach Matt Painter, which I’ll have to mail to you because I am a [forgetful person],” said Keady as he worked the room with his usual aplomb. “I left it in my car. It’s signed, so just give me your address and I will mail it to you.”

The golf outing was founded last year in order to raise scholarship money for Maconaquah High School graduates who wished to attend Purdue University. Carlee Glassburn and Justin Hunt received this year’s scholarships and will head to Purdue in the fall.

“With coach Keady able to pick any high school for scholarships, it is pretty close to a miracle,” said event organizer Herschel Gulley. “My father-in-law was a former member of the College All-Star team back in 1938 [Indiana Basketball Hall of Famer Pat Malaska]. Coach Keady also tried to recruit my son [Rob Gulley] to play with Matt Waddell and Glenn Robinson as a walk-on. Rob decided not to play at Purdue, but that relationship through coach Keady and the Kiwanis has lasted since then.”

Several items were up for a silent auction at the event, as well as some excellent door prizes for the post golf raffle. Among the items up for bid was a round trip for four from Grissom Air Reserve Base to New York and courtside seats for a game this coming college basketball season. Keady, who is now an assistant to Steve Lavin at St. John’s, assisted in setting up that item.
