“Thanks to the great weather and enthusiastic crowds, the second annual Meijer LPGA Classic presented by Kraft was a complete success and will continue improving the quality of life in the Midwest,” Meijer President J.K. Symancyk said. “Everyone who has supported the tournament has helped make a difference because this week was about more than world-class golf. It was an opportunity for the entire community to come together to have fun while supporting a very important cause – feeding the hungry.”
Meijer began its Simply Give program in November 2008 and has since generated more than $16 million for its food pantry partners. The $750,000 donation will be divided among our estimated 200 food pantry partners participating in the fall Simply Give campaign, which runs through Sept. 12.
