Welcoming Guests to The McGladrey Classic

Today marks another beautiful day here at The McGladrey Classic on Sea Island.


To encourage employee engagement and reward employees, McGladrey sponsored an all-employee contest, which resulted in one winner from each of the firm’s regions winning an opportunity to serve as on-the-ground reporters to give their fellow teammates a first-hand account of activities taking place during the Classic. One of the first winners, Scott Moran along with his guest, arrived at Sea Island yesterday afternoon, and attended a welcome reception for clients and potential clients at The Cloister’s Black Banks Terrace.

Team McGladrey Zach Johnson, McGladrey LLP Managing Partner and CEO Joe Adams, and Chief Marketing Officer Bob Gerardi were featured speakers welcoming guests to Sea Island and to The McGladrey Classic.

Before the evening's festivities, however, was the inaugural PGA TOUR Wives Wiffle Ball Classic where TOUR players and their wives teamed up with local children for a "boys against the girls" game of good, clean fun. While the boys took home the trophy, the real winner was Altama Elementary's Blessings in a Backpack Program, which took home the $15,000 raised by the event!


After golf, a little pool-side relaxation and tours of the facilities, Scott will report back to McGladrey employees on his experiences on the island.

We’ll continue to provide daily updates here on our golf blog, as well. So check back regularly throughout the week for new information. You can also follow tournament events at www.mcgladreyclassic.com or by watching the Golf Channel this coming weekend.
