Representatives with the Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft today deemed the inaugural tournament a success with a $600,000 donation to the retailer’s Simply Give program, which advances its mission of helping Midwest food pantries restock their shelves and improve the quality of life within the region. Rookie superstar Mirim Lee of South Korea took home the trophy at the inaugural LPGA Tour event, which took place at Blythefield Country Club Aug. 7-10, but the real winners are the families who will benefit from the donation.

“From the great weather to the enthusiastic crowds, the Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft was a complete success in its first year and will have a longstanding impact for a long time coming,” Meijer President J.K. Symancyk said. “The tournament afforded us an unmatched opportunity to raise awareness and funding to address hunger in the Midwest. We cannot thank the community enough for the way they embraced this tournament to help make a difference to those in need.”

Meijer teamed up with SKECHERS and the K.I.D.S./Fashion Delivers charitable organization to provide new shoes to 22,500 Detroit area children in need. Of those children, 2,000 were invited on Aug. 26 for a day of fun at the Detroit Zoo that included a new pair of BOBS from SKECHERS shoes, new school supplies, lunch, a visit around the zoo and the opportunity to meet fun mascots, including “PAWS” from the Detroit Tigers and “Roary” from the Detroit Lions. The remaining pairs of shoes were given to Detroit Public Schools to distribute to students in need throughout the school year.

“We are so thankful for this wonderful partnership with SKECHERS and Meijer,” said Karen Ridgeway, superintendent of academics for Detroit Public School. “Our students and parents were able to enjoy a day at the Detroit Zoo, and more than 20,000 children will receive brand new BOBS shoes to help ensure they have a great start to the school year. I know that this is a day they will never forget.”
