Copy-Kiss The Pig Contest Raises Money For Food For Kids

Thanks to all your help at the State Fair this year, News 9 raised more than $13,000 for the Regional Food Bank!

Fairgoers were encouraged to donate to the cause by picking which News 9 personality they would most like to see kiss a pig. 

In the end, Meteorologist Lacey Swope pulled in more than $2,000. She visited Bad Boy Genetics in Cashion to find the perfect pig. Then, she puckered up and planted a sweet smooch on a sow named Illinois. 

Every single penny raised during the contest goes to the Regional Food Bank's Food for Kids Program! That will provide 41 students with a backpack  full of food every weekend for one school year.
