The 2nd annual Kiss a Pig event is scheduled for November 14th at the Hilton in downtown Lexington. This fundraising event pits 11 local business and community leaders against each other to see who can raise the most money for the American Diabetes Association. The winner receives the honor of kissing this years special guest, Dolly the pig. This event celebrates pigs due to their contribution to the treatment of diabetes, a disease that effects more than 500,000 Kentuckians. Insulin, discovered in 1921, was originally derived from the pancreas of pigs. The American Diabetes Association honors the pig for saving millions of lives.
This years event includes dinner, complimentary drinks, entertainment by Caught Red Handed, a live and silent auction and the announcement of who gets to kiss Dolly. The Lane Team is being represented by the mother daughter duo, Kitty and Meredith Lane. They are hoping to raise the most money as possible for this great cause, and to win the honor of kissing a pig!
