A McGladrey Update from TPC Sawgrass

We just can’t help ourselves. We have to start this week’s update by letting you know that McGladrey LLP’s very own Tony Ceci, from McGladrey’s Stamford, CT office, had a thrill of a lifetime when he caddied for Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco during the PLAYER’S Championship Pro-Am at TPC Sawgrass. Tony won the opportunity by placing the highest bid during a charitable auction. Nice, huh? (Here’s a cool shot of Chris on the 14th fairway, by the way.) Which PGA Tour professional would you like to caddie for if you had the chance? Fellow Team McGladrey members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III are playing in the PLAYER’S Championship, as well, along with Heath Slocum, winner of the 2010 McGladrey Classic and 2011 winner Ben Crane. Sounds like “the McGladrey connection” to us! We’ll be pulling for “our boys!” Before things kicked off at Sawgrass, a few key leaders from McGladrey met with local leaders in Jacksonville, FL to celebrate being “Halfway to The Classic.” A highlight of this red-carpet event included a panel discussion featuring Chris and Davis. It’s hard to believe we’ll be heading to Sea Island for our third annual tournament (Oct. 15-21) in just a little more than five months. We can hardly wait! And speaking of The McGladrey Classic, the Davis Love Foundation announced recently that Southeast Georgia Health System will be the official health care partner of the Foundation and the 2012 McGladrey. SGHS was an important partner for The Classic last year, and we look forward to continuing that partnership in 2012, as they not only provide their medical expertise, but also serve as the presenting sponsor of the Gary Allan Concert and McGladrey Classic Youth Day. If you want to join in the fun of this year’s event, you can purchase tickets and/or sign up to volunteer. We hope to see you at Sea Island!
