A portion of proceeds from the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship was presented to Friends of Children’s Hospital Tuesday morning.
During a news conference, Century Club Charities presented a $1 million check to the fundraising organization dedicated to supporting the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s pediatric healthcare mission. The check was accompanied by over $500,000 from other charities across the state, taking the 2022 total charitable impact of Century Club Charities to over $1.5 million statewide.
“Through the efforts of our amazing tournament partners and sponsors, especially our title sponsor, Wayne-Sanderson Farms, as well as the Century Club Charities members, board, and staff, tournament volunteers, The Country Club of Jackson, and the PGA TOUR, the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship allowed us to once again make a substantial gift to Mississippi charities,” said Phillip Carpenter, president of Century Club Charities, Inc. “We were very excited to host a first-class event and all the excitement fans have come to expect, and that support allowed us to reach lofty goals when Children’s of Mississippi and other statewide charities are in great need.”
Since Wayne-Sanderson Farms became the title sponsor of Mississippi’s lone PGA event in 2013, the tournament and Century Club Charities have contributed over $15.7 million to Children’s of Mississippi, which provides pediatric care to over 170,000 kids across the state annually.
The 2023 Sanderson Farms Championship is set for October 2-8 at The Country Club of Jackson.
