Grand Rapids is home to what the LPGA says is the best family experience on its tour. The Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give, returns to Blythefield Country Club the second week in June. Today we have Cathy Cooper, Executive Director of the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give, in studio to talk with us.
Meijer says the support the community has shown this event the last five years is incredible. To date, the Meijer LPGA Classic has generated more than $4.2 million for food pantries in the communities they serve.
It wouldn’t be possible without the help of volunteers. This year they need more than 900 volunteers to continue making the tournament a success.
Meijer has a “Refer a Friend” volunteer program where all returning volunteers are eligible for a $20 Meijer gift card when they refer a friend who did not volunteer in 2018. The referred friend must work a minimum three shifts for the returning volunteer to receive the gift card.
