2016 Tournament Highlights:
Past winner Peter Malnati and his wife visited Batson Children’s Hospital prior to the tournament and the patients enjoyed painting the chicken tee markers that sat at each tee during tournament play. Patients from children’s hospital also enjoyed a craft time with The PGA Wives Association and were joined by several Saintsations Cheerleaders and Gumbo the Mascot from The New Orleans Saints! All had a great time painting ceiling tiles that were installed in children’s hospital as well as some other crafts and fun games. At every step, Mr. Joe Sanderson and the Sanderson Farms Championship team set out to highlight Friends of Children’s Hospital and Batson Children’s Hospital in all they did and we certainly appreciate their continued support of our state’s only children’s hospital!
