For the past 30 years, RSM has brought clients, business partners, and friends of the firm together at Skeets & Eats to enjoy shooting, dinner, networking, and fun. The event, held at the National Shooting Complex in far northwest San Antonio, is a way for RSM to show its appreciation for clients and friends of the firm.
“It’s a little way to say thank you to our clients and friends for what they give us throughout the year,” said RSM Partner Denise Bendele. “It is a way to bring friends together and celebrate another year of success, both for our clients and for our firm.”
Professional Shotgunner Travis Mears joined the event this year and gave the crowd a fun, action-packed exhibition shooting show, where he shot hand-thrown targets from the hip, over his head with the gun upside down, behind his back, between his legs, and over his shoulder. He also shot targets while jumping on a trampoline and hanging upside down in an inversion table, and shot all kinds of hand-thrown fruits and vegetables.
RSM presented the San Antonio Food Bank, and Director of Philanthropy Mary DeMarginy, a check for $62,854.96, as a result of the office’s 2021 Birdies Fore Love employee fundraising efforts. Birdies Fore Love is RSM’s charitable giving platform for The RSM Classic, a PGA TOUR event for which RSM is the title sponsors. Each year, RSM offices commit to raising funds for local charitable organizations aligned with the missions of the RSM US Foundation and the Davis Love Foundation, the host organization of The RSM Classic. These efforts are supported by matching donations from the RSM US Foundation.
Skeets & Eats guests enjoyed a fajita dinner, appetizers, ice-cold beverages from the bar and skeet shooting – either in five stand, regular skeet or sporting doubles. For novice shooters, the National Shooting Association provided instructors to help shooters learn the basics and make their first shooting experience an enjoyable one.
