SPRING LAKE — Fluid and fun will be flowing Saturday, Jan. 20, at the 12th annual Spring Lake Heritage Festival Committee's Bloody Mary Mixoff.

The event runs from noon to 5 p.m. at the Holiday Inn, 940 W. Savidge St. in Spring Lake. It includes a silent auction, raffle and live entertainment by Jim Shaneberger.

This is the largest fundraiser for the Heritage Festival, typically raising between $3,000 and $6,000. Besides putting on the festival, the committee also donates funds to community projects, most recently to the Save the Catwalk campaign and Gracious Grounds.

“We make a lot of money, then we give it out,” said the committee’s president, Steve VanBelkum.

The mixoff is always a popular event, VanBelkum said.

“Who doesn't love a good bloody?” he posed. “There's not a whole lot to do on a cold Saturday afternoon. Why not go down to the Holiday Inn, have a few bloodys and hang out with your friends? It's always a good time. And you get to see people you haven't seen in a while.”
