The golf action is coming from Connecticut this week for the Travelers Championship. Playing is Team RSM Member Zach Johnson, along with past RSM Classic winners Heath Slocum (2010) and Ben Crane (2011). Heath started the day at 7:15 a.m., ET from tee No. 10, followed by Ben at 7:45 a.m. from tee No. 1. Zach teed off at 1:15 p.m. from tee No. 1. We’re pulling for “our guys” this week and weekend!
Did you hear the news? Birdies Fore Love is now live! Now in its third year, RSM’s Birdies Fore Love program is a giving platform tied to The RSM Classic. Each year, RSM makes a difference for at-risk youth through Birdies Fore Love, thanks to stellar participation from its partners, principals and employees, as well as gifts from clients and friends of the firm. The RSM US Foundation also provides a generous match.
Through Birdies Fore Love, RSM offices commit to raising funds for a local charity that aligns with the missions of the RSM US Foundation and Davis Love Foundation. In 2015, the program more than doubled the prior year’s giving, raising almost $1.3 million for 65 charities in the local communities where RSM’s employees live and work. The strong fundraising through Birdies Fore Love coupled with proceeds from the tournament brought the 2015 total donation to over $2 million and the program total to more than $4.8 million.
Giving back to the community through The RSM Classic and Bridies Fore Love is one of our favorite parts of the tournament each year, and we’re looking forward to doing more great things for those in need through this year’s event. If you’d like to join us to help at-risk youth in the areas of education, hunger, housing or health, we hope you’ll consider donating to Birdies Fore Love. Read the official contest rule and regulations here.
Check back next week for the latest on Team RSM and the 2016 RSM Classic (Nov. 14-20)! (That’s only three short months away so if you haven’t yet gotten your tickets, you might want to do that today.)
