Charitable Impact

The Sanderson Farms Championship has raised over $13 million for charity. Each year the tournament contributes to over 50 local charities, with Friends of Children’s Hospital being the primary beneficiary.

We know that the people who are buying our chicken aren’t doing it because we sponsor a golf tournament, but we don’t sponsor a golf tournament so that people will buy our chicken. We do it for the 175,000 children who are treated at Children’s of Mississippi each year.
