Giving Thanks


This time of year, our thoughts naturally turn to giving thanks, and here at McGladrey we have so much to be thankful for, just of few of which are:

• our more than 2,100 employees who recently gave back to their local communities by participating in volunteer activities for area nonprofits through our firm’s second nationwide Volunteer Day,
• an extremely successful 2011 McGladrey Classic at beautiful Sea Island, which raised approximately $300,000 for local and national nonprofits, and
• our great partnerships with Team McGladrey members PGA TOUR professionals Zach Johnson, Davis Love III and Chris DiMarco, and LPGA TOUR Professional Natalie Gulbis. (Both Chris and Natalie on The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive this week – Chris as a guest host on Nov. 17, and Natalie as a guest on Nov. 15. You can read her story online.

We’re also thankful for the generosity of The President’s Cup, which is underway this week in Australia. More than $23 million has been distributed to 380 charities in 15 countries since the event’s inception in 1994. We’ll be watching this weekend, and pulling for Team USA!

What are you thankful for?

We’ll be taking a break to spend time with family and friends next week, but will post our next update on December 1. We hope you’ll check back with us then!
