GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WZZM) -- The Meijer LPGA Classic officially begins Thursday, but the event is more than just watching golf --- it's also a chance to help the community.

Proceeds of every ticket help Simply Give, a Meijer program that helps area food pantries, according to Christina Fecher.

"This tournament coincides with our Simply Give program, which replenishes the shelves of food pantries throughout the Midwest, so proceeds from this tournament and all accompanying events will support the Meijer Simply Give program."

If you can't make it out to Blythefield Country Club, you can still help by buying a $10 Simply Give gift card at your local Meijer store.
