Today’s golf blog update is from John Davitt, an RSM US tax senior associated based out of the firm’s Rockford, IL office. John traveled to Sea Island for The RSM Classic as part of his role with the firm’s Birdies for Love program.
After wrapping up our firm’s Birdies Fore Love fundraising campaign for 2015, I was eager to experience The RSM Classic first hand at Sea Island, GA. Saturday morning, we were very excited to leave the eight inches of snow in Chicago for the southern comforts of Sea Island. I brought my wife Alison, and was eager to show her the culture of RSM.
Upon arrival, we were greeted with the beautiful landscape of Sea Island, with all The RSM Classic signs and decorative touches enhancing the beauty of the island is this RSM employee’s mind. After entering the lobby of The Cloister, all of our expectations were far exceeded. The hotel staff was beyond accommodating, and it seemed that every detail of our stay had been well thought out by the RSM team. We felt surrounded by a gracious community of employees and guests. And appreciate now having first-hand knowledge of how our firm’s clients and potential clients are treated as part of their RSM Classic experience.
Saturday evening, we attended a concert by Martina McBride. She put on a fantastic show, which was enjoyed by all. The concert also gave us an opportunity to interact with other RSM employees and their guests. The hospitality that our firm extends to clients and guests is a true reflection of the culture of RSM – we truly do understand our clients, and strive to always provide them with first-class experiences. And the charitable component of the tournament, the concert and other related activities is a perfect display of RSM’s values of excellence and stewardship.
Today, is the final round of the 2015 RSM Classic. We are eager to watch as Kisner, Chappell, and McDowell play at the top of the leaderboard in efforts to be this year’s winner. Although the unfolding of the tournament is exciting, the real celebration is the impact that RSM has had in 2015 in changing lives across all communities. We are very thankful for the opportunity to be a part of the 2015 RSM Classic, and would encourage everyone to attend and support this event in the future. It’s a great way to give back to the community, while also having fun.
