Jenna Bush Hager

The Sanderson Farms Championship is pleased to announce it will host its second annual Women’s Day event featuring Jenna Bush Hager and sponsored by International Paper. Women’s Day will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2015, at The Country Club of Jackson.

The event will allow Mississippi’s women business professionals and state leaders a chance to network and discuss topics important to them during a luncheon at which Hager will be the keynote speaker. Following lunch, attendees are encouraged to take an “Inside the Ropes” tour of the golf course, as well as Golf Channel’s on-site studio.

“At International Paper, women represent an essential component of our business groups, facilities and communities,” said Deano C. Orr, executive director of the International Paper Foundation. “We thank our female employees for their insight, unique perspective and contributions. International Paper congratulates featured guest, Jenna Bush Hager, and is proud to serve as event sponsor of the Women’s Day Luncheon at the 2015 Sanderson Farms Championship.”

Steve Jent, executive director of the Sanderson Farms Championship, said, “Women’s Day provides a unique opportunity for women to network with successful leaders and expose them to the game of golf and the PGA TOUR. We are also excited to have International Paper as the sponsor for our second annual event.”

Last year’s Women’s Day Brunch was so popular among guests that tickets for this year’s event have already sold out.

Hager is a contributing correspondent on NBC’s Today Show and an editor-at-large for Southern Living magazine. She is also the author of The New York Times best seller Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, which she wrote after traveling to Latin America in 2006 as an intern with UNICEF. She is also the daughter of former U.S. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush. In 2008, she married Henry Hager. On April 13, 2013, she gave birth to daughter Margaret Laura “Mila,” and recently announced the birth of her second daughter, Poppy Louise, on August 13, 2015.
