While Team RSM isn’t playing this week, we do have a few extended RSM “family members” that we plan to cheer on. In San Diego for the Farmers Insurance Open, past RSM Classic winners Ben Crane (2011), Robert Streb (2014) and Mackenzie Hughes (2016) are playing. Teeing off at 10:10am PT from Tee No. 1 is Ben; not too far behind from the same tee, Robert tees off at 10:30am and Mackenize at 10:40am. Best of luck to our guys this week!
Earlier this week, the PGA TOUR shared an incredible announcement. In 2016, the TOUR and its tournaments raised more than $166 million for charitable organizations, generating a record-breaking charitable donation. This brings the TOUR’s all-time total contribution to charity to $2.46 billion since it first started taking contributions in 1938. What an incredible feat! We’re proud to share the value of stewardship with the TOUR through our sponsorship of The RSM Classic!
Just like the PGA, RSM US LLP (“RSM”) and The RSM Classic, understand the importance of giving back. Each year, the tournament provides a platform for our firm to give back to the communities where our employees live and work through Birdies Fore Love, Youth Day and generous support from the RSM US Foundation. We are excited to share that within the next few weeks, we will have the numbers in and will be able to share the total amount raised form the 2016 RSM Classic. Stay tuned for that exciting announcement.
