McGladrey Congratulates McGladrey Classic Birdies Fore Love Winner Gavin Martin



McGladrey LLP, the nation's leading provider of assurance, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market, and title sponsor of The McGladrey Classic, congratulates Birdies Fore Love (BFL) Winner Gavin Martin.

Martin, who is a transfer pricing manager for McGladrey based out of the firm's Boston office, won the worldwide contest by most closely guessing the number of birdies that would be made during the 2013 McGladrey Classic at Sea Island. To enter the contest, golf fans around the world submitted their guesses, along with a monetary donation. (One-hundred percent of all donations went to designated charitable organizations.)

As title sponsor of The McGladrey Classic, McGladrey encouraged employees to participate in BFL by making donations to local charitable organizations of their choice in the communities where they live and work, and to encourage clients to do the same. While the total number of monetary donations raised through BFL is still being calculated, preliminary numbers indicate that McGladrey employees and clients raised an estimated $430,000 for children- and family-based nonprofits nationwide.

"Participating in Birdies Fore Love was a great opportunity for McGladrey employees to demonstrate our firm's core value of stewardship," said Chris Parrish, a supervisor in consulting services with McGladrey, and national leader of the firm's BFL efforts. "It also provided us with an opportunity to partner with many of our clients who also value stewardship, enabling us to work together to help those in need."

"McGladrey has been an incredible partner since the inception of The McGladrey Classic in 2010," said 20-time PGA TOUR Winner Davis Love III, who serves as tournament host for The McGladrey Classic, and is a member of Team McGladrey. "I am extremely proud to be part of this team that has embraced the overall charitable mission of the PGA TOUR and our Foundation (Davis Love Foundation) on such a grassroots level."

"Being the national winner of Birdies Fore Love is thrilling," said Martin. "I entered the contest for a few reasons: to support my local community and the charitable programs of McGladrey, as an expression of my faith, and to encourage participation in BFL within the McGladrey Boston office. I never thought I would win the brand new Buick. This is an amazing and totally unexpected surprise, and I'm very grateful to Nalley Buick for their support of The McGladrey Classic and Birdies Fore Love."
