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

Peru —

Other items were a signed basketball by former Purdue star Carl Landry, who now plays for the New Orleans Hornets, a signed pair of shoes from the Indiana Pacers’ Jeff Foster, and a seven-night, eight-day vacation at a resort of the winner’s choosing.

Participants could also buy a $50 card worth $50 off of their next hotel stay through Expedia, and $25 of that purchase would go to the scholarship fund.

“I’m very pleased. It was a fantastic turnout [Saturday],” said Keady. “Herschel and Sue Gulley do a great job of staying on top of things. It’s for a really great cause in sending young people to college in my wife’s memory. That’s very special to me.”

Keady, who now spends six months of the year in Lafayette and the other six months in New York for his coaching duties, was pleased to participate with several Purdue fans, and also quick to defend the Boilermakers’ honor with any Indiana fans in attendance. Former Kokomo and Lewis Cass basketball coach Basil Mawbey was among those in attendance.

“Having that relationship from recruiting my son helped us a lot,” said Herschel Gulley. “Coach Keady once drove over 600 miles round trip to talk to us when he wanted Rob to [walk on]. When we wanted to set this up, we asked several other agencies to help, but they wanted the money for their general fund. Coach wanted it for scholarships, and we were able to set things up for him.”

The team of Kevin Russell, Blake Russell, Jim Ousley and Brad Chesterman were the team winners of the scramble, with the team of Kurt Kiefer, Chuck Bellar, Jim Murphy, and Jeff Zimmerman coming in second.

Keady was pleased with the overall turnout, even though it fell short of the $1 million goal that some had set for the event. Had they reached that goal, Keady’s famous combover would have disappeared as he had agreed to shave his head if that happened.

“If this thing gets any bigger, we’re going to have to move it,” said Keady. “I hope that happens, so we’ll see.”
