Traverse City, Mich. - May 28, 2015 - - The all new Great LakesEquestrian Festival is set to make its debut just outside of Traverse City,  Mich. on July 1 and will run all month long at the beautiful Flintfields Horse Park.

 

Joining the growing family of sponsors is Meijer, a family-owned retailer based in Grand Rapids, Mich. that operates more than 210 supercenters and grocery stores throughout Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Kentucky.

 

"We're very excited to have a company like Meijer joining us as one of our corporate sponsors," said Michael Morrissey, the President of Stadium Jumping, Inc. "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."

 

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.

 

Founded in 1934, Meijer is a family-run retailer that is credited with pioneering the modern supercenter concept in 1962. The concept features mixed retail with food, hardware, automotive electronics, apparel, garden centers, apparel and a pharmacy to offer one-stop shopping.

 

The 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 2015 Great Lakes Equestrian Festival is an event equestrians won't want to miss. Management suggests that those planning on attending this year's shows to get their entries in to Stadium Jumping as soon as possible.

 

The Great Lakes Equestrian Festival lifts off on July 1 and continues through the month. We hope to see you in beautiful Traverse City, Mich. this summer.
