The Sanderson Farms Championship

david standing first dayProfessional Staffing Group is proud to have supported the Sanderson Farms Championship held in Jackson, Mississippi. Our own David Waugh volunteered at the Championship. Unfortunately, he had to spend part of that time waiting on the rain to clear.

This tournament–the only PGS TOUR event in Mississippi–has an important economic impact on the state and benefits many charities throughout Mississippi.  The Sanderson Farms Championship’s Mission, is to build upon Mississippi’s unequaled charitable spirit by supporting the state’s deserving charities and promoting a sense of community and pride for the state of Mississippi on a national stage. The Sanderson Farms Championship and the PGA TOUR made joint contributions totaling over $1.4 million to Mississippi charities last year. Since 1968, over $9 million have been contributed to charitable organizations in Mississippi.

Sanderson Farms is the third largest chicken producer in the country, with operations across the southeast and customers across the globe, but its roots are in Mississippi. The company started in South Mississippi as a small, humble feed and seed store and has grown to one of the state’s largest employers.
