The 30th Annual Trustmark Friends of Children’s Hospital Golf Tournament held on Monday, October 30, was a huge success as 300 golfers turned out for an afternoon of golf and fun. Friends raised more than $145,000 from this year’s tournament. Through chilly temperatures and a bit of drizzling rain, 63 teams simultaneously played across three Jackson-area golf courses with a shared mission to raise funds for Friends of Children’s Hospital.

Every year, the money raised from the tournament helps support the Children’s of Mississippi Child Life program. This amazing program provides essential support to children and families by addressing their psychological, emotional, and developmental needs. Through therapeutic play, preparation for medical procedures, and educational resources, the program effectively reduces fear, anxiety, and pain for patients and their loved ones.
Since 1993, the tournament has raised over $3.2 million in support of the Child Life program, making a significant impact on the lives of countless children and their families.
