The Holiday Inn Spring Lake offers help to a variety of organizations throughout the year, with many of our hosted events providing proceeds to different organizations in need. This year, Holiday Inn Spring Lake partnered up with the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy to put on what will become our signature event to reoccur annually. The event proceeds go directly to help in the Lighthouse Conservancy’s efforts to restore and maintain the Lighthouse and Foghouse. The Glowing for Grand Haven event took place on August 1, 2012 entailed a silent auction showcasing local West Michigan artists work, centered around the lighthouse and nautical theme. The night continued on with a Black Light Party serving signature glow in the dark drinks in Jack’s Lounge. The profits were finally compiled and today, Holiday Inn Spring Lake was able to attend the Lighthouse Conservancy’s monthly meeting where we presented them a check for over $3000 from our first years event!
We want to give a special thanks to all of our sponsors who helped get the event off the ground and running, along with the generous donations provided by local artists. To see a listing of all of our sponsors and donors from 2012 check out the website.
The Holiday Inn Committee has already begun planning the 2013 event, in which we hope to gain more support and raise more money to continue to support the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy.
