The 29th Annual Trustmark Friends of Children’s Hospital Golf Tournament held on Monday, October 17, was a huge success as more than 240 golfers turned out for an afternoon of golf and fun. With beautiful weather and a great cause, 50 teams simultaneously played across three Jackson-area golf courses with a shared mission to raise funds for Friends of Children’s Hospital.
Annually, proceeds raised at the tournament fund the Children’s of Mississippi Child Life program, which enables the hospital to meet the psychological, emotional, and developmental needs of children and their families.
The program also provides therapeutic play, preparation for procedures, and education that reduces fear, anxiety, pain and suffering for patients and families. Proceeds from the 2021 tournament allowed Friends to donate $124,913 to the Child Life program.
