(JACKSON, Miss.) – Tournament officials announced there is still time to be a corporate sponsor for the 2016 Sanderson Farms Championship, to be played October 24-30 at The Country Club of Jackson.
"Sponsorships are the cornerstone of a successful tournament," said executive director Steve Jent. "The corporate and private support we received in 2015 helped raise more than $1.5 million for Friends of Children’s Hospital and many other charities throughout Mississippi. Over the years, the commitment these organizations have shown our event is extraordinary and illustrates what a wonderful market Mississippi is for both professional golf and philanthropy."
"We are excited about the variety of hospitality opportunities we have to offer this year, ranging from climate-controlled chalets and skyboxes for entertaining, to a table for four on “The Porch”, a new open-air venue on the 9th Green to gather and enjoy the company of friends,” added John Mercer, Director of Sales. "We also have several Pro-Am Team sponsorships up for grabs for anyone looking to play with friends/clients alongside a PGA TOUR player.”
A complete listing of private or shared hospitality venues and opportunities can be found at http://www.sandersonfarmschampionship.com/sponsorships/packages/. The tournament staff will be looking to finalize additional sponsorships in the upcoming weeks to ensure the success of this year's tournament.
The 2016 Sanderson Farms Championship will feature a purse of $4.2 million with $756,000 going to the winner. The Golf Channel will broadcast 12 hours of primetime coverage from Thursday's opening round to the trophy presentation on Sunday. Two Pro-Am tournaments will take place during the week, The John Soules Foods Pro-Am on Monday, October 24, and the Allen Exploration Pro-Am on Wednesday, October 26.
