Kiss-a-pig fundraising event kicks off in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT)- Would you kiss a pig?

A dozen community leaders are competing for that honor, and Friday night they enjoyed a face- to- face snuggle with the piglet.

"Dolly" is just five-weeks old, and was a real trooper at Talon Winery.

Dolly stole the show at the "Summer Wine Down Kiss a Pig Kick-Off."

The kiss a pig candidates are raising money for the American Diabetes Association, which benefits adults and children dealing with diabetes.

"We pour money into programs for kids to go to diabetes camps in the summer. we pour money into getting more legislation passed so kids are more comfortable in school who have to fight this disease," Eric Case, who is on the ADA Board of Directors, said.

The kiss a pig fundraising continues until November 14th when a winner is announced, and puckers up to kiss Dolly.
