Meijer’s LPGA Classic Benefiting Simply Give Extended Through 2021

Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give

The 2019 Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give renewed its agreement with the LPGA and Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for two more years, extending the tournament through 2021.

“The Meijer LPGA Classic has made an incredible impact on our hungry neighbors, and we are excited to continue to come together with the community to make a difference,” Meijer LPGA Classic Executive Director Cathy Cooper said. “This tournament is such a special way for families to spend time together, and we couldn’t be more pleased with the community support.”

Despite the rain, the 2019 Meijer LPGA Classic had a record attendance with more than 56,000 visitors throughout the week. It also generated $1.1 million for the retailer’s Simply Give program that stocks the shelves of food pantries across the Midwest. In total, the six previous tournaments have generated $5.2 million for Simply Give.

Upcoming tournaments are June 8-14, 2020, and June 7-13, 2021. Each will host a full field of 144 of the best women golfers for 72 holes of stroke play over four days of competition, and feature events for the entire family.

Grand Rapids-based Meijer operates more than 245 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kentucky and Wisconsin.
