Kiss a Pig Competition Kicks Off

Trying to spread the word about diabetes and having a good time in the process, they kicked off the annual Kiss a Ppig competition at the Crab Shack on Tybee yesterday. The candidates and some supporters turned out to get to know each other and the pig they're competing to kiss.

"Kiss a Pig in Savannah is a great thing," said chairperson Shelia Woo. "We have the largest fundraising campaign in America."

The American Diabetes Association sponsors the competition every year. Last year, they raised $350,000 dollars. They hope to raise even more this year.
