Kevin Buggy – Ambassadors of Mercy

Born: Kingston, NY

College and major: Villanova University, Economics


“I’m retired, but I was at the Board of Trade for 18 years – trade tracker clerk, trader in the treasury bond option pit and the 10-year option pit.”

Passions outside of work:

“Besides golf, volunteering would be one of them. I’m currently vice chairman of the Western Golf Association and Evans Scholars program. The Evans Scholarship program is probably the country’s largest full tuition and board scholarship. We give it out to caddies with financial needs and good grades and we have over a thousand kids in school right now on free tuition and board and 4-year scholarships. And it’s coast to coast, but mainly in the Midwest.” 

Favorite activities during high school:

“Basketball, tennis, and golf. I was on both the varsity basketball and tennis teams.”

Most influential person growing up:

“I guess my dad – he worked for IBM. He worked a lot and I think he gave up a bunch of jobs so he could kind of keep the family in one place to not get moved around a lot – he kept us together and kept us in the same schools. He coached me in basketball, he taught me how to play golf when I was young. He was just a good role model and somebody to look up to while I was growing up.”

Favorite part about Mercy Home’s mission:

“You kind of get taught in life: help those who need help. Few people more than Mercy Home have done it as good or as long as they have in the Chicagoland area. Getting older, watching my kids growing up and understanding the importance of education and things like that – they’ve been great and the longer I’ve known what they’ve done the more impressed I am with what they do.”

Mercy Home legacy:

“Somebody that cared about the Home and took some time and effort to make the Home a better place.”
