This year’s RSM Classic teed off yesterday as RSM US LLP (“RSM”) private equity clients joined RSM leaders and a number of junior level RSM professionals hit the course for Monday’s Pro-Am. What does it take to be invited to participated in such a fun and prestigious event at RSM? Our “Take One” program provides opportunities for junior level professionals across the firm to have direct interaction with clients. As part of that program, this year, we invited 14 professionals to walk inside the ropes with their private equity clients during the Monday’s Pro-Am. Read what Susie Warsal had to say about her experience:
“It was amazing to experience the magnitude of this event first-hand and meet some of the top names on the PGA Tour. I felt proud seeing the RSM logo all over Sea Island. But most importantly, it was a wonderful opportunity to get closer to our clients and RSM partners in a setting where everyone was excited and having fun. I am very thankful for the opportunity.”
A highlight of the afternoon was the tournament’s annual Youth Day, where Chris DiMarco entertained children from across the island with a few trick shots, lessons on golf and leadership, and his humor – along with a few signed golf balls, which made several of the children very happy.
The evening was topped off with a client and prospect reception where Team RSM Member Zach Johnson shared personal insights and stories from the 2016 Team USA Ryder Cup with attendees. Following Zach’s comments, author Joshua Evenson was on-hand for live auction emceed by Doug Opheim. Joshua’s beautiful, one-of-a-kind book, Letters to St. Andrews, generated heated (but friendly) bidding among the attendees, and raised a total of $14,400 for nonprofit organizations aligned with the RSM Foundation’s mission of building tomorrow’s middle market leaders through programs that support youth through education, hunger, housing and health.
Today, we’re back on the course, enjoying the beauty of Sea Island, and looking forward to spending time with clients and prospects during this evening’s Pro-Am Pairings Party at the home of Team RSM Member Davis Love III.
