The event runs from noon to 5 p.m. Saturday at Old Boys’ Brewhouse, 971 W. Savidge St. in Spring Lake. It will include a pajama contest, slipper contest, 50/50 raffle and door prizes.

The event is a fundraiser for the Heritage Festival Committee’s community projects. Last year’s mixoff raised more than $4,000.

This year’s mix-off includes a live auction with a Detroit Red Wings game package, golf packages and sports memorabilia.

“This gives people something to do during the winter months,” said Dave Hamather, the committee’s president. “With Christmas out of the way and tax time coming up, this gets people out and about instead of hibernating. This gets them out in the community doing things without having to go too far or spend a lot of money.”

Admission is free, but bloody Marys will cost $2 each.

The Grand Haven Eagles Aerie 925, 22 Below, Jack’s, Old Boys’ Brewhouse, Theater Bar, J.W. Food and Spirits, and B&B Beverage will compete for the best mix.
