Good morning from Pinehurst!



There was a LOT going on with The McGladrey Team Championship here in Pinehurst yesterday and last night!

Team McGladrey Member Natalie Gulbis hosted our live auction for Special Olympics, while Sirius XM Radio’s Matt Adams served as emcee for the evening. The generosity of those who contributed items for the auctions (We had a silent auction in addition to the live auction.) and those who bid on them is truly humbling. While we haven’t tallied the totals yet, we’re were thrilled to raise $2,000 for an autographed Sheryl Crowe and sold $2,380 worth of raffle tickets for three lucky winners to have breakfast with Natalie. We’re anxious to share the grand total of our fundraising efforts, and will be posting that here on Tues., Oct. 27.

This morning, RSM McGladrey's new ad campaign, featuring Natalie Gulbis and her caddie Greg Sheridan, debuts in the Marketplace section of The Wall Street Journal. "The power of being understood demonstrates how strong relationships enhance understanding and lead to success.

Team McGladrey Members Chris DiMarco and Zach Johnson, along with Natalie, will participate in golf clinics with McGladrey Team Championship players and Special Olympics athletes this morning. We’ll be using Ustream to share video from those clinics, as well as other McGladrey Team Championship activities. Check those out on our YouTube channel.

Remember to tune in to XM Radio 11 a.m., ET, over the next few days to hear interviews with Chris, Natalie and Zach. Remember, too, that if you have a question you’d like to ask a Team McGladrey member, submit that here. We’ll try to get those answered for you.

Now…it’s off to the course…
