Team McGladrey keeps busy for good causes

It's another very busy week in the world of Team McGladrey!

Zach Johnson is fresh off a week's break and is playing this week in Fort Worth, TX at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. The event at Colonial starts a busy four week stretch for the 2007 Masters champion, which concludes with the U.S. Open Championship at Pebble Beach in mid-June.

As you may remember last year at Colonial they held the first ever "Pink Out" in support of Phil Mickelson's wife Amy and to bring awareness to breast cancer and all those affected by the disease. In order to show continued support for Susan G Komen for the Cure and to continue to help raise awareness, the 2nd Annual Pink Out will take place on Saturday, May 29. The tournament is encouraging everyone; fans, players, caddies and officials, to wear pink in support of the cause. Crowne Plaza will donate $100 for each birdie and $500 for each eagle that is made by a player during Saturday's third round. Kudos to Crowne Plaza for helping to bring awareness to such an important cause!

While Natalie Gulbis has an off week this week, she is anything but idle! Natalie has been busy doing clinics and charity work raising money for the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, an organization close to her heart. And, speaking of charity, Natalie is also involved with a unique nonprofit called Caddy For A Cure that donates to other charities in efforts to accomplish things like finding a cure for childhood cancer. It provides the ultimate in golf experiences, the opportunity to caddy for a PGA TOUR or LPGA Professional during the practice or Pro-Am round of an official PGA TOUR or LPGA event. During the Wegman's LPGA Championship held at Locust Hill Country Club in Pittsford, NY, the winning bidder will have the opportunity to caddy for Natalie.

Everyone here at McGladrey wishes everyone a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend! Let the summer begin!
