The Meijer LPGA Classic is fast approaching, and organizers say they need a helping hand.
About 900 volunteers are needed for the tournament named the Best Family Experience on the LPGA Tour.
The 72-hole tournament will feature 144 female golfers. It will run from June 10-16 at Blythefield Country Club in Belmont.
Volunteers can serve in various roles: committees, marshals, standard bearers, transportation, media center and in the Grand Taste Garden.
“Each year, the support the Meijer LPGA Classic receives from the players, community and our dedicated volunteers is incredible,” said Rick Keyes, president and CEO, Meijer. “We look forward to bringing another fun week of events and competitive golf to the community.”
Volunteer registration is open and includes a Refer a Friend option.
“As we head into our sixth year, we want to continue to build upon the momentum that has deemed our tournament one of the premier events on the tour,” said Cathy Cooper, executive director, Meijer LPGA Classic. “And that means we need even more volunteers. We believe the Refer a Friend program will help us put on another successful event.”
The proceeds from the tournament will be donated to Meijer’s Simply Give program, which re-stocks the shelves of food pantries across its retail footprint.
The volunteer fee is $55.
