An evening under the stars

ARTICLE  | 

Making a positive impact in the communities where our people live and work is one of RSM’s highest priorities. Our caring people go above-and-beyond to support children and families in need across the nation through Birdies Fore Love (BFL), RSM’s charitable giving platform related to The RSM Classic. And every year, several of our BFL office leaders are invited to attend The Classic as a thank-you for their leadership efforts and their focus on Stewardship. Read Jason Miller’s account of his time at this year’s RSM Classic below.

An evening under the stars at Sea Island

I happily volunteered to co-lead the Detroit office’s Birdies Fore Love campaign. Birdies Fore Love is just one of many of the ways RSM gives back to the communities where our people live and work. It’s an annual fundraiser related to the annual RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR event, which our firm sponsors. The goal: raise money for charitable organizations that support families and children in need. 

Through the Detroit office’s efforts, we hosted multiple fundraising events, the culmination of which was audit partner, Jim Ward, taking a pie to the face! Due to everyone’s involvement in the office fundraising efforts, I was awarded a trip to The RSM Classic! My wife and I were excited to escape the snow and cold of Detroit, and head to the coast of Georgia. Upon arrival to Sea Island, we were amazed by the hospitality and beauty of the resort and island. My wife and I are looking forward to relaxing, skeet shooting and checking out the golf activities.  

After roaming the resort grounds and seeing the beauty of the powerful Atlantic Ocean we set up shop at the hot tub and pool to rejuvenate before the evening reception. The reception, which took place at The Cloister’s Black Banks Terrace, was all about “love.” RSM US LLP Managing partner and CEO Joe Adams, and Team RSM member Zach Johnson both spoke about how RSM values of respect, integrity, teamwork, excellence and stewardship are aligned, and how we’re using #Celebrating10Years on social media to help celebrate the event’s 10th anniversary.  

We enjoyed networking with RSM colleagues and clients throughout the evening. It was a wonderful event through and through.

We’re looking forward to heading to Davis Love III’s house this evening (Tues., Nov. 19) for the “big reveal” to find out how much was raised by all the RSM offices during this year’s Birdies Fore Love campaign to help those in need!
