CONSIDER THIS: Sanderson Farms Championship

Source: WLBT Source: WLBT

This week is shaping up nicely with fantastic weather for the annual PGA tournament. When the event was moved from July to October, these conditions were what organizers had in mind. And, not only is the weather cooperating, this year’s field of professional golfers is arguably one of the best in the history of the event.

Sanderson Farms and other corporate partners have stepped up to make this a top shelf event. In fact, Sanderson Farms has committed as the title sponsor through 2026. That’s a big deal because there was a time when the state was close to losing the event.

This stability allows organizers to make longer term, more strategic decisions. It also means many Mississippi charities, especially the Baton Children’s Hospital, will benefit from the generous contributions for years to come.

Consider This:

Even with the many improvements, the event needs our help to reach its true potential. The best way to do that is to show up. The weather is great. The competition is impressive.

Let’s prove to the sponsors and the PGA that they made a wise investment in Mississippi. Get your family and friends together and let’s make 2016 the year of record crowds at the Sanderson Farms Championship.
