The torch is lit, the battle on, in the all important Olym-Pig Competition.
The goal is to raise funds to assist the American Diabetes Association to find a cure.
A contest between community leaders to raise money, Kiss-a-Pig is now a regional campaign with contestants from Chatham, Effingham, Liberty counties as well as Beaufort (S.C.) County. The winners kiss a live pig, honored by American Diabetes Association as the original source of insulin, during a gala on May 30 at the Hyatt Regency Savannah.
The Marathoners will be the Savannah-Chatham County Public Schools versus the community of Liberty County, competitors for 17 years and 13 years, respectively.
So intense is the the largest fundraiser of the year, even a well-known doctor is going all out to kiss that pig!
Dr. Sidney Smith with Georgia skin and Cancer Clinic has been nominated for Kiss A Pig through the American Diabetes Association.
