With the Waste Management Phoenix Open kicking off today (Thurs., Jan. 30), Team McGladrey Member Chris DiMarco stopped by The Golf Channel’s Morning Drive to discuss low rounds at the tournament. If you missed it, check out the discussion here. And, speaking of Chris, we wish his daughter Manda a belated happy 16th birthday this week! (Her special day was Jan. 28.)
Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson has been in the news recently: First, when he committed to play at the Honda Classic (Feb. 24 – Mar. 2) and then when he was nominated as one of four PGA TOUR professionals as the organization’s Player of the Month. Zach is in the running based on his outstanding performance during the month of January. Now, it's up to fans to choose the winner. Voting is open Jan. 29 through Feb. 2.

While you are in the voting mood, check out The Center for Corporate Citizenship’s 2014 Film Festival website. Many amazing videos have been entered to demonstrate how companies use a video as a communication tool to share their stories of corporate philanthropy. Be sure to check out McGladrey’s Hurricane Sandy video and cast your vote for the most compelling video! McGladrey’s video represents the importance of stewardship. All around the country, McGladrey employees pulled together to help out their fellow colleagues and others in the Northeast who were affected by Hurricane Sandy.
And speaking of supporting the community, McGladrey expands its philanthropic efforts each year through its title sponsorship of The McGladrey Classic. During the 2013 tournament, McGladrey upped the ante a bit by encouraging employees and clients to support the tournament’s Birdies Fore Love program. The results are in, and we now know that the 2013 McGladrey Classic raised more than $850,000 for local and national charitable organizations! ($430,000 of that was raised by McGladrey employees and clients through Birdies Fore Love.) This brings the total raised through The McGladrey Classic to more than $1.8 million since the tournament’s inception in 2010. It is an honor and a privilege for McGladrey to be associated with such an initiative. For details about how last year’s golf tournament supports charitable organizations, visit the McGladrey website.
Check back next week for another update about Team McGladrey and all things related to The McGladrey Classic, to be held in October 2014 at beautiful Sea Island.
