Place your bid to help restore Grand Haven’s lighthouse

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) The beautiful Lake Michigan shoreline is one of West Michigan’s greatest assets… and along it are some historic lighthouses, including the one in Grand Haven.

A restoration started by the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy is now under way. This week, there’s a big event planned to help them out.

“Glowing for Grand Haven” will take place on Friday, July 18, at the Grand Haven Spring Lake Waterfront Holiday Inn. The silent auction is made up of items from local artists and businesses that represent Michigan-made products and historic area lighthouses. You can bid on paintings, photographs, jewelry, sculptures, and more!

The silent auction will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. A live auction, consisting of larger items, is held from 7 to 8 p.m. The silent auction is free to attend, but a $10 buy-in is required to obtain a bid paddle to participate in the live auction.

Glowing for Grand Haven t-shirts are available for purchase online with registration or at the hotel’s front desk. Register online in advance to receive a discount at Jack’s Waterfront Bistro + Bar.

Proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Grand Haven Lighthouse Conservancy.
