Today is the day! You came out to the Oklahoma State Fair and generously donated money to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma's Food For Kids Backpack Program and now it's time for News 9's David Payne to pay up.

A grand total of $7,401.36 was raised. That money will provide 37 chronically hungry children with backpacks full of food for an entire school year.

But no fundraiser would be complete without a little friendly completion. And just like last year, News 9 news, weather and sports anchors put their lips on the line for the cause. Also like last year, the reigning champion, David Payne, will pucker up and kiss the pig!

Final totals are as follows:

1. David Payne: $2,816.63

2. Kelly Ogle: $939.25

3. Stan Miller: $651.10

4. Lacey Swope: $570.40

5. Amanda Taylor: $399.72

6. Jed Castles: $351.50

7. Dean Blevins: $341.27

8. Robin Marsh: $277.06

9. Lacie Lowry: $229.06

10. Bobbie Miller: $217.00

11. Jim Gardner: $207.00

12. Tammy Payne: $159.37

News 9 would like to offer a big ‘Thank You' to Maddie from Yukon, who let us borrow her 5-week-old pig for the kissing! Maddie is a part of the Yukon FFA program.

We are so thankful to everyone who visited the News 9 booth and donated to the Regional Food Bank!
