Time flies, doesn’t it? It seems as if we were just congratulating 2013 McGladrey Classic Winner Chris Kirk and then, just earlier this week, the Davis Love Foundation announced that the window is now open for returning volunteers to begin registering to help with the 2014 tournament! (The registration window opens for new volunteers on April 1.) Volunteering is near-and-dear to our hearts here at McGladrey. Not only does it make The McGladrey Classic possible and support our core value of stewardship, but it’s also a passion for our 6,700+ employees who give back to the communities where they live and work through our annual Volunteer Day and throughout the year. We’re looking forward to seeing The McGladrey Classic volunteers who return each year, and to meeting those of you who will be helping this year for the first time. Are you interested in helping make this year’s McGladrey Classic a success? Complete your application form. We’ll look forward to seeing you at Sea Island in October.
This week, Team McGladrey Member Zach Johnson is in Miami for the World Golf Championship-Cadillac Championship. Zach teed off at 12:28pm EST on tee 1. He’s joined by Chris Kirk, who teed off at 12:06pm. Speaking of Chris, this has been quite a year for UGA alumnus. Chris started the momentum when he won the 2013 McGladrey Classic—and since then four other UGA grads have gone on to win a tournament. Go Dawgs!
And while we’re on the topic of previous McGladrey Classic winners, 2011 McGladrey Classic winner, Ben Crane’s birthday is today (March 6). To celebrate, he’s doing something special partnering with charity:water to raise money and awareness for people without clean water. We are so inspired and humbled by Ben’s support of this great cause. Stewardship is clearly one of Ben’s core values. Thank you, Ben – and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
