Meet 2015 KC Magazine Most Wanted Auction’s Kelly Eddy

Kelly Eddy

Executive Director of Kansas City Crusaders

Golf has always had a presence in Kelly Eddy’s life, from her first job at Wichita’s Tallgrass Country Club and her scholarship to play at Wichita State to her current job as executive director of Kansas City Crusaders. The nonprofit aims to support KC area businesses and charities through the promotion of professional golf and its Digital Alley Open, the city’s only PGA-sanctioned event. Since coming on board, she’s led the organization to a major increase in sponsorship, high volunteer and membership numbers and a jump in spectators in attendance.

Kanas City Crusaders’ primary beneficiaries are Children’s Mercy, S.A.F.E., Concerns of Police Survivors and the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. Personally, Eddy substitute teaches social skills groups on the weekends and is helping plan a new fundraising event for the Joshua Center for Neurological Disorders, an organization that helps children with disorders such as high functioning autism, Tourette’s and pervasive developmental disorders. She also donates her time to the First Tee of Greater Kansas City, filling in as a coach when needed.
