Sanderson Farms Championship


Friends of Children’s Hospital is proud to be the named beneficiary for the Sanderson Farms Championship, played annually at The Country Club of Jackson. One of only 45 PGA TOUR tournaments held each year, the Sanderson Farms Championship has been part of the PGA TOUR schedule since 1968 and is part of the FedEx Cup.

The 2015 tournament was a huge success despite rainy weather and Peter Malnati took home the Reveille trophy. Century Club Charities, host organization for the Sanderson Farms Championship, will soon unveil the amount raised for Friends of Children’s Hospital. Many are hoping the contribution will top last year’s record-setting amount of $1,102,700! Thank you to Sanderson Farms, The Sanderson Farms Championship Tournament Staff, all the event Sponsors, contributors and volunteers for making the tournament a huge success and helping highlight Batson Children’s Hospital to so many!

Past winner Nick Taylor visited Batson Children’s Hospital prior to the tournament and the patients enjoyed painting the chicken tee markers that sat at each tee during tournament play. The golfers and spectators enjoyed seeing all the different chickens around the course! Patients from children’s hospital also enjoyed a craft time with The PGA Wives Association and were joined by several Saintsations Cheerleaders and Gumbo the Mascot from The New Orleans Saints! All had a great time painting ceiling tiles that were installed in children’s hospital as well as some other crafts and fun games. The tournament week was capped off with a performance by Jack Ingram following play on Saturday, November 8th and patients from children’s hospital and their families had a special seating area and were allowed a meet and great session with Jack Ingram and the opening act Dirt Road Anthem. At every step, Mr. Joe Sanderson and the Sanderson Farms Championship team set out to highlight Friends of Children’s Hospital and Batson Children’s Hospital in all they did and we certainly appreciate their continued support of our state’s only children’s hospital!
