This coming Mon., May 29 is Memorial Day. We hope everyone has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and takes time to remember and thank those who have served and are serving our country. At RSM, we are proud to support veterans, military service members and their families. Within our firm we have our Stars & Stripes employee network group which encourages the recruitment, retention and success of veterans, military service members and their families. This network provides many resources to support the development of these individuals, while leveraging their diverse skill sets to serve our clients. The RSM Classic salutes the men and women who serve and have served in our armed forces. To show our support, the Saturday of tournament week is designated as Military Appreciation Day.  All servicemen and women will have access to a hospitality venue located near #9 green that includes complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages as well as premium golf viewing. In addition, at last year’s tournament, the RSM Classic teamed up with Folds of Honor for a “Million Dollar Challenge” and the firm presented a $10,000 check to Folds of Honor. We look forward to teaming up with them again this year. Learn more here.

Check back next week for more updates.

The Additional Perks

Calling all new volunteers! This Mon., May 15, registration for The 2017 RSM Classic (Nov. 13-19) will be open for those who have not volunteered during the tournament previously. Some of the requirements to volunteer include:

Other than the amazing golf and beautiful scenery that Sea Island has to offer, what are some of the benefits from volunteering your time? Well, for one, you receive a cool-looking uniform to wear during your shift(s). Take a look below for a sneak peek at that and other volunteer benefits below:

Halfway There

This week, the golf action is coming from Wilmington, NC, where the Wells Fargo Championship is underway. If you’re wondering why the tournament is not being played as usual in Charlotte, there’s a great reason for it – the PGA Championship will be contested at Quail Hollow come August, so this year’s event was temporarily relocated.  There are quite a few familiar faces playing in this tournament, including Team RSM members Zach Johnson and Davis Love III, along with past RSM Classic winners Chris Kirk (2013), Robert Streb (2014), Kevin Kisner (2015) and Mackenzie Hughes (2016).

Teeing off today (Thurs., May 4), Mackenzie started at 7:23 a.m. ET from tee No. 1; shortly after from the same tee, Zach started at 7:34 a.m.; at 7:56 a.m., Davis teed off from No. 10; at 12:33 p.m., Kevin teed from tee No. 1 and Chris started from tee No. 10; and Robert teed at 1:06 p.m. from tee No. 10. Best of luck to all “our guys” this week!

And speaking of Chris Kirk, we want to wish him an early Happy Birthday as he celebrates on May 8!

 We are now just days away from the six-month mark for the eighth annual RSM Classic (Nov. 13-19)! While that might seem a long way away, tickets for the 2017 tournament go on sale Thurs., June 1 (less than a month from today)! And it’s never too early to start making your plans to join us this fall. Below is a quick rundown of what you can expect during tournament week. Sea Island – home of The RSM Classic – is a unique place that should be experienced firsthand. Regardless of whether you’re a big golf fan, we’d love for you to spend the week with RSM US LLP enjoying the tournament and taking in the amazing environment on the island.

“There’s something about this place that’s timeless. There are deep connections here. To nature, to tradition, to a warm welcome. To excellence recognized with 79 Five-Star and Five-Diamond honors. To gracious and heartfelt hospitality.” –Sea Island
