Savannah Boar Association to host fund-raiser

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – The Savannah Boar Association is hosting a fund-raiser Wednesday to benefit the American Diabetes Association's Kiss a Pig Campaign.

The party starts at 5 p.m. Wednesday with an official Irish blessing by Father Patrick O'Brien at 22 East 34th St.

A donation of at least $10 is requested to drink from the many kegs of imported Irish beer, eat food catered by Barnes Restaurant, and listen to Irish pub tunes.

Kiss-a-Pig is a contest among community leaders. Their goal is to must raise enough votes at a $1 a vote, and the one with the most votes wins a chance to kiss the pig. The pig will be kissed at the Intergalactic Ball on May 7 at the Hyatt Regency in Savannah.
