SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The 2013 Kiss-A-Pig Campaign for the American Diabetes Association came to an end Saturday night. 

This year's contests were honored at the "A-Pig-Alypse Bash" featuring an auction and enterainment.
 
Honored by American Diabetes Association as the original source of insulin pigs hold a special place in the hearts of everyone associated with the campaign.
 
This year's winner Dave Smith had the honor of kissing "Fang" the pig a resident of Thunderbolt. 

"When I see a room full of people like that who are all out there raising money for this cause I believe in, it just tickles me to death, because I realize a lot of good things are going to be done with the money these people raise tonight," said Dave Smith.

To date the American Diabetes Association has raised nearly seven hundred million dollars for diabetes research.  

No word on just how much the campaign raised. We will let you know as soon as we get the results.
