The Sanderson Farms Championship is pleased to announce BankPlus has recommitted as sponsor of the BankPlus Fan Pavilion featuring Seafood R’evolution, as well as the BankPlus Junior Pro-Am.

The BankPlus Fan Pavilion is a hospitality venue on the 12th green that also overlooks the entire 13th hole, which is accessible with an upgraded ticket. The tent will feature a variety of Coastal fare prepared by Seafood R’evolution’s John Folse and Rick Tramanto, as well as access to the pavilion bar. All proceeds from the venue will go to Friends of Children’s Hospital.

The BankPlus Junior Pro-Am will be held on Monday, November 2, 2015, on the Cypress Course at The Country Club of Jackson. It will be a six-hole event where junior amateurs get the chance to play alongside a PGA TOUR professional.

BankPlus is not only an asset to this community, but it is an asset to this tournament, as well. In my time here, I have gotten to know BankPlus CEO Bill Ray and his staff well,” said Steve Jent, executive director of the Sanderson Farms Championship. “Bill and his wife, Sara, have a huge passion for Friends of Children’s Hospital and their sponsorship agreement will allow us to increase the amount we are able to give to Friends.”

Bill Ray, CEO of BankPlus, said, “BankPlus is proud to once again partner with Sanderson Farms and Century Club Charities in order to help showcase the largest professional sporting event in Mississippi. And we are all extremely excited about the difference this event is making for Mississippi’s only children’s hospital.”

Seafood R’evolution is incredibly excited to announce that we will be involved in the Sanderson Farms Championship,” Chef John Folse said. “We are catering the BankPlus Fan Pavilion during the tournament from Thursday to Sunday, November 5-8. Be sure to get a ticket while they last and join us on the 12th green for some delicious food and cold drinks!”
