Meijer is committed to enriching lives in the communities we serve, and the seventh annual Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give will be no exception once the time is right. Due to the ongoing challenges and health concerns surrounding COVID-19, the Meijer LPGA Classic is postponed until further notice.
While we were all looking forward to June and the sense of community the tournament offers, we felt it was too soon given the current situation. We are connecting regularly with the LPGA Tour and are hopeful that the tournament will be held later this year.
The Meijer LPGA Classic exemplifies our culture because it’s more than a golf tournament. It’s an opportunity for the entire community to come together and feed our hungry neighbors through the Simply Give program. Thanks to generous community support, our six previous tournaments generated more than $5.2 million for food pantries across the Midwest. That equals more than 50 million meals for hungry families.
Our commitment to Simply Give and your mission of feeding hungry neighbors in the communities we serve hasn’t faltered. We are moving forward with the spring Simply Give campaign, which is scheduled to run May 10 through June 20. Please note that we’ll send additional communications as we get closer to the campaign.
