Mississippi got some nice publicity this month with the Sanderson Farms PGA tournament. Although the weather wasn’t completely cooperative, the annual event had one of the best field of contestants and shined a positive light on the state.

Major sports events are dependent on sponsorship and Sanderson Farms has stepped up and committed to extending its partnership for 10 more years.

Having that backing in place means tournament organizers can focus on growing the event, increasing attendance and improving the player and fan experience. It also means continued support for the charitable partners that receives millions of dollars in funding.

Consider This:

This event is good for our image, it’s good for the non-profit partners and it’s good for business. One study determined that it had an impact of more than $20 million on the local economy.

This tournament has a long history beginning in Hattiesburg in 1968. Thanks to Sanderson Farms there will be much more history and because of their commitment the future for this special event is very bright.
