Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give Sets $1 Million Donation Goal for Year Five
Previous four tournaments generated more than $3.1 million for retailer’s Simply Give program
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Representatives with the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give have set a $1 million goal for the fifth annual tournament to donate to the Meijer Simply Give program.
To date, the previous four tournaments have generated more than $3.1 million for Simply Give, which stocks the shelves of the retailer’s food pantry partners across the Midwest.
“The Meijer LPGA Classic has made an incredible impact on our hungry neighbors these past few years, and we know we can continue that momentum next month with the community’s help,” Meijer LPGA Classic Executive Director Cathy Cooper said. “The community has been such a strong supporter of our tournament, and its focus on feeding the hungry, that we are confident we will reach our $1 million goal.”
Meijer started its Simply Give program in November 2008, and has since generated more than $37 million for its food pantry partners. The contributions donated as a result of the Meijer LPGA Classic are due, in large part, to the generous Meijer customers who attended the tournament week events, and the sponsors who helped make the event a success.
Proceeds from the 2018 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will be split among the retailer’s more than 235 food pantry partners participating in the spring Simply Give campaign. The spring campaign kicked off May 13, and will end June 17.
