The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft has partnered with General Mills to provide a community concert featuring OneRepublic on July 25 at Van Andel Arena®, tournament officials announced today.
Fans will recognize OneRepublic’s hit, “Counting Stars,” which is the title track on their most recent album Native. Other notable tracks from Native include “Love Runs Out,” “I Lived,” and “If I Lose Myself.”
“This year’s Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft will once again bring top talent – on the stage and the golf course – to Grand Rapids,” Meijer President J.K. Symancyk said. “We are pleased to partner with General Mills once again this year, and believe the community will embrace the opportunity to hear the musical talents of OneRepublic.”
Concert tickets will go on sale in early May at meijerLPGAclassic.com and will start at $25 each. Applicable ticket fees will apply.
With Grand Rapids, Mich.-based Meijer as the title sponsor, the driving mission of the tournament is focused on feeding the hungry and improving the quality of life within the region. The tournament will coincide with the retailer’s Simply Give program, which has raised nearly $14 million for food pantries across the Midwest since its inception in November 2008.
Similar to last year, proceeds from the tournament – and each of the week’s festivities including the community concert – will benefit the Simply Give program. The inaugural Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft raised $600,000 for the Simply Give program to feed those in need.
The Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft will host a full field of 144 players playing 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition July 21-26 at Blythefield Country Club.
