Each year the Meijer LPGA Classic brings in over 100 of the best female golfers from around the world to compete for more than just the $2.5 Million purse.
Playing 72 holes over four days, these golfers are fighting hunger in our community by partnering with Meijer’s Simply Give program, which helps restock food pantries throughout the Midwest.
Spectators can walk the course and watch the players compete with a daily admission ticket. You can even bring a bagged camp chair.
All proceeds from the tournament benefit Simply Give, and every ticket actively helps food insecure families in Grand Rapids.

More About Simply Give
Simply Give, a program designed by Meijer to aid Midwest food pantries, raises money via the Meijer LPGA Classic.
This program focuses on providing healthy food and groceries to families in need right here in our community by working with local food pantries to keep their shelves stocked.
During the Simply Give campaign, each Meijer store partners with a local food pantry. These local organizations then get to choose the necessities (like baby food, formula, diapers, and wipes!) that are most needed by the families they serve.
Anyone – even folks that don’t attend the LPGA event – can make a difference via Simply Give.
The next time you’re in a Meijer store or online (meijer.com or the Meijer app), you can purchase and donate Simply Give cards.
