David Payne Kisses Pig For 'Food For Kids'

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

It's finally time to pay the piper, or kiss the pig. We promised you that Chief Meteorologist David Payne would kiss a pig.

Now, David doesn't like to kiss and tell, but it was because of you that the pig smooches were made possible. The slobbery kiss was because David raised the most money at our booth at the Oklahoma State Fair.

That money was raised for the Regional Food Bank's Food for Kids program.

A lot of very generous visitors to the Oklahoma State Fair help feed some hungry children, and determine that News 9's David Payne will have to pucker up with a pig.

News 9 set up a booth at the fair this year to raise money for the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food For Kids program. Fairgoers who gave money to the program placed their donations in a specific News 9 anchor's box; the anchor they most wanted to see kiss a pig.

The person who collected the most money was Meteorologist David Payne. He collected $2,626. Here's how much the other anchors collected:

Kelly Ogle- $1,518

Stan Miller- $838

Amanda Taylor- $733

Jim Gardner- $484

Dean Blevins- $439

Jed Castles- $395

Bobbie Miller -$272

In all, News 9 collected $12,309.60 for the Food For Kids program, which included a generous donation of $5,000 from Continental Resources to the Regional Food Bank. The money will provide 61 kids with a backpack full of food on weekends and holidays for an entire school year.
