This year we hope to honor Graham Keeley and his family. Graham passed away in September of 2015 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Graham grew up in Louisville and attended Kentucky Country Day School and St. Xavier High School. He graduated with a degree in business from the University of Colorado Boulder in 2011, where he was a member of Phi Kappa Psi.
Graham was a friend to all and enemy to none. Graham truly did “light up the room.” He had the ability to put a smile on everyone’s face, and captivated a crowd with charm, humor, and true love for people.
Graham enjoyed all things University of Louisville athletics, and certainly excelled as a boisterous fan. Beyond that, Graham loved competing in just about anything. He was an avid sportsman and competed in half marathons and Ironmans. Beyond his loyal devotion to teams and athletic prowess, Graham had a true love for music. We all aspire to be the dancer that Graham was – he didn’t miss an opportunity to cut a rug! We will always remember Graham for all of his great qualities, and certainly hope to make him proud with this year’s event.
Our donations will go to Cross-Cultural Solutions, a non-profit that Graham cherished and traveled with to Africa. We all miss him and think about him daily. Please continue to keep Graham’s family in your prayers, and don’t be afraid to show up in full force in honor of Graham!
