Batson is Mississippi's only hospital built specifically for the care and emergency treatment of children. Friends of Children's Hospital ensures their patients have everything from stuffed animals to state-of-the-art medical equipment.
All tournament proceeds go to benefit this organization.

Generating charity dollars for Mississippi 501c (3) charitable organizations.
Birdies For Charity is open to ANY 501c (3) charity in the state. Century Club Charities, Inc. will provide all training necessary for successful pledge solicitation. CCC will also provide billing and collection efforts, collateral material, promotional items, fabulous prizes and all administrative duties. One hundred percent of the collected pledges goes to you.
"Birdies" works on pledges secured by representatives of the charitable organization. Pledges are based on the number of birdies made Wednesday through Sunday during tournament week at the Sanderson Farms Championship. In 2013 1,894 birdies were made. A minimum pledge of one penny per birdie would generate $18.94 for the designated charity.
In twelve years of operating Birdies For Charity, over 400 charities have received over $7.3 million with no fundraising or operating expenses.
