Traverse City, MI - May 19, 2016 - The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is one of the summer's highlight show events, packed with competition and set in the picturesque town of Traverse City, Michigan. Many sponsors have joined the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival family for the second year of the show, while others remain on board and build upon their support from the show's inaugural year.
Meijer joined the family of sponsors last year when the show successfully kicked off, and will continue its sponsorship at this year's equestrian extravaganza as well.
Meijer is a family owned retailer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan operating over 210 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, and Kentucky.
"We were very excited to have a company like Meijer joining us as one of our corporate sponsors during our inaugural year," said Matt Morrissey, the Show Manager. "They are a world class, well-run company with a fabulous philosophy, not unlike our own. They, too, believe in giving back to the community. To see them back again shows their support for what we're doing here in the Traverse City area. We are thrilled to welcome them back!"
Meijer revolutionized the supercenter industry in 1962 after being founded in 1934. The store's concept mixes retail with food, hardware, automotive electronics, apparel, garden centers, and a pharmacy, offering customers a one-stop-shop for any of their needs.
Meijer was built on a fundamental philosophy aimed at strengthening the communities it serves. Meijer proudly donates more than 6 percent of its net profit each year to charities throughout the Midwest. With hunger as a corporate philanthropic focus, Meijer partners with hundreds of food banks and pantries through its Simply Give and food rescue programs. Meijer also support education, disaster relief, and health and wellness initiatives.
The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is set on 88 beautiful acres and showcases five world-class competition rings in addition to spacious schooling rings. The property features don't stop there as the park offers convenient on-site campgrounds, making for a truly unique attendee experience.
Given its gorgeous summer setting and its wide range of classes, the 2016 Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is an event that equestrians won't want to miss. Entries close on June 1st. To download an entry form, please click here.
