Bloody Mary Mixoff sets record

The sixth annual Bloody Mary Mixoff attracted record numbers Saturday at Old Boys' Brewhouse in Spring Lake. And that added up to record proceeds.

The fundraiser for the Spring Lake Heritage Festival committee cleared more than $5,000 — according to Heritage Festival spokeswoman Michele Yasenak — up from $4,300 in 2010.

Crowds starting lining up for the noon opening shortly after 11 a.m., Yasenak said.

“They were standing outside in the cold waiting for the doors to open,” she said. “I don’t know exactly how many people we had, but I know it was a record attendance. People kept coming in and coming in, and they never left.”

Participants sipped $2 bloody Marys and played cornhole out on the deck under a sun-spangled sky.

Proceeds from Saturday’s fundraiser will be used toward the 2012 Spring Lake Heritage Festival, scheduled for June 12-16. The annual community celebration includes a flea market, family fun night, barbecue chicken wing cookoff, a senior citizens’ day, beer tent and fireworks.
