It wasn’t exactly the year they would have scripted for the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give, but it WAS a great week of golf and it DID put Grand Rapids in the spotlight and raise money for a good cause.
Cathy Cooper joined us from Meijer to tell us how this year’s tournament turned out. She said the event raised $1.1 million for Simply Give, the Meijer charity that helps local food pantries feed people.
Meijer’s contract with the LPGA means there will be another tournament next year, hopefully with a return to some sense of normalcy, while continuing to make a positive impact in the community.
