S. Miami County Kiwanis, Keady teaming up again

Golf tournament is July 11 at Peru's Rock Hollow Golf Club.

Former Purdue basketball coach Gene Keady and Herschel Gulley go way back. To trace their link, you have to move back a full generation.

“The reason we know Keady is that my father in law [Pat Malaska] was co-captain of the ‘37-38 team at Purdue,” said Gulley, the special project chairman for the South Miami County Kiwanis Club. “And he’d go back every year when they had their banquets.”

So through that link, Gulley came to know Keady. After many years, and after the coach stepped down after 25 seasons with Purdue, Gulley and Keady came together for a good cause.

“Becasue of [Malaska] we knew the coach pretty well and I talked to him about leaving a legacy with him and his wife,” Gulley said.

Keady’s wife Pat died in 2009.

“[We] started it because of my wife, and when she passed away Herschel wanted to do something in her name, and they use the money for scholarships to send kids away to college,” Keady said.

Gulley recalled that shortly after Pat’s death he called Keady and they had lunch. That started them down the path to a fund-raising golf tournament.

“I said how about going ahead with that legacy and he said ‘I’d like to do it for Pat.’ So we called it the Pat Keady Memorial. Today we call it the Keady Legacy.”

The Coach Keady Legacy Golf Tournament is scheduled for next Thursday, July 11, at Rock Hollow G.C. in Peru.

“it’s a lot of work,” Keady said of organizing the tourney. “Herschel wanted to do it. I thought it’s for a great cause but the hours, I didn’t have time to do it, and so he picked up the ball and ran with it.”

For the first time this year, following the golf, the Honeywell Center in Wabash will host Keady in a talk and question-and-answer session at 7:30 p.m. Also, the following morning the Charley Creek Inn of Wabash will host a breakfast with Keady at 9 a.m. July 12. The events are sponsored by the South Miami County Kiwanis Club.
