Wounded Warrior Project - Kellys Rally to the Cause
March 11, 2005
The Kelly Gang rides again! On Monday — St. Patrick's night — the "Gang" will take over media mecca Michael's to honor U.S. Army Sgt. Ryan Kelly and raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project, which helps soldiers maimed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Sgt. Kelly lost his right leg below the knee in a bomb blast in Iraq and has since been trying to help other GIs in similar straits. The Kelly Gang is named for legendary Australian outlaw Ned Kelly, but its modern-day Gotham "gangsters" include Top Cop Ray Kelly, "Empire Rising" author Tom Kelly, Time magazine editor Jim Kelly, American Express Publishing CEO Ed Kelly, AOL Networks president Mike Kelly, Kevin J. Kelly, CPA, John Q. Kelly, Esq., Elle Girl executive editor Christina Kelly, Prevention magazine publisher Kate Kelly Smith and The Post's Media Ink columnist, Keith J. Kelly. Last year, the Gang raised about $30,000 for the family of Atlantic Monthly's Michael Kelly, the first American journalist killed in the Iraq War.
