St. Paddy’s Day in a Box: Create Your Own Mix Drink to Support Lakeshore Museum Center

Lakeshore Museum Center cheers sláinte or “good health” to Muskegon residents looking for the ultimate St. Patrick’s Day at home. The museum’s latest fundraising event is offering St. Paddy’s Day in a box: the makings of delicious Irish cocktails to enjoy with the whole crew.

100% of all proceeds from the fundraiser go directly to support LMC and Muskegon businesses. Each kit includes a recipe for three cocktails, ingredients and a gift card for a full bottle of whiskey or gin from local favorites Wonderland Distilling Co or the 18th Amendment. The kit also includes a link to LMC’s live virtual cocktail-making demonstration, where donors can learn how to concoct the perfect brew from a Muskegon bartender. Donors can learn first-hand how to stir up fresh blackberry brambles, mules, and bees knees.

“We are excited to host a fundraiser with an Irish twist,” said Museum Experiences Director Jackie Huss. “The sláinte kits are an opportunity to celebrate the end of winter and St. Paddy’s Day while supporting both the museum and local distilleries.”

Kits are available on Eventbrite for $125.00 each. Residents must be 21 or older in order to participate. Pre-order your kit by March 8th. Kits can then be picked up at Lakeshore Museum Center and include a gift card to the donor’s distillery of choice to cover the cost of alcohol. The live event takes place Friday, March 19th at 7:00 pm. This event is meant to take place at home, and Lakeshore Museum Center reminds its donors to drink and drive responsibly.
