Happy Fourth of July!



 Happy birthday to Golden Isles resident and PGA TOUR player, Matt Kucha, who celebrated his birthday this past Sunday (June 21). We hope you had a wonderful day, Matt!

Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco made a special guest appearance at McGladrey’s partner meeting this week in Orlando!  Chris spoke to the partner group about playing on the PGA TOUR, his partnership with McGladrey and about his annual Norma DiMarco Tee Up For Life tournament, which benefits ROCK – Reach Out to Cancer Kids.  Chris also spent time at our philanthropic event that evening where teddy bears were made for the Orange County First Responders, back packs were filled for children attending Camp Boggy Creek, rocking chairs and bookshelves were built for area schools and care packages were assembled for our active military. Following a day of meetings, the McGladrey leadership team, RSM International representatives (insert hyperlink) and McGladrey Alliance (insert hyperlink) members rolled up their sleeves to give back to the area community through a philanthropic event where they:

·         Assembled 150 military boxes for those serving overseas,
·         Packed 200 backpacks for children attending Camp Boggy Creek (insert hyperlink),
·         Assembled 36 book shelves,
·         Wrote personalized messages in 100 books for children in need,
·         Assembled 40 rocking chairs, and
·         Stuffed 216 animals made for the first responders of Orange County.

It was a great way to exemplify McGladrey’s core value of stewardship.

Team McGladrey Member Davis Love III teed off at 7:50 a.m. this morning (June 27) at the AT&T in Bethesda, MD. And each summer Zach Johnson goes back to Cedar Rapids, Iowa for a Pro-Am to raise money for a program he started “Kids on Course.” Find out more about this program here.

We will be taking next week off to celebrate the Fourth of July! We wanted to take this time, however, to remind you to sign up for BREAKFAST AT THE BRITISH, which will be taking place July 19 at Retreat Golf Club. It’ll be a fun way to watch The Open Championship LIVE while dabbing your taste buds in some international treats!

We hope our readers have a safe and bright holiday. Be sure to share with us your Fourth of July fireworks pictures on Facebook! Check back July 11 for more updates on Team McGladrey and the McGladrey Classic (Nov. 4-10).
