Zach Johnson helps raise money for Special Olympics at Hazeltine

Exciting news this week from The PGA Championship at Hazeltine!

Team McGladrey Member and PGA Tour Professional Zach Johnson was on hand to help McGladrey employees from the Great Plains region present Special Olympics with a $42,000 donation, raised by employees over the course of the summer. McGladrey executives, Special Olympics athletes and other VIPs were there to help celebrate the occasion.

McGladrey employees who donated $1,000 or more were eligible to win an opportunity to participate in The PGA of America’s “Walk within the Ropes” program during the Championship. McGladrey & Pullen Managing Director Christi Mack of Minneapolis was the lucky winner of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and is scheduled to walk with Zach Johnson, Mike Weir and Boo Weekly tomorrow (Fri., Aug. 14).

Those were our highlights from this week. What were your week’s highlights? What’s coming up? What would you like to talk about here on our blog? We’re anxious to get the conversation started!
