Pig kissin' at its best…
Marie tells me this is your chance to give…and get someone to kiss the pig:
Vote on Kiss for the Cure!
Ian, now here is a really fun fundraiser to raise money for cancer research. Who will be man enough to kiss a pig? Sheriff Bill Cumming, Under Sheriff Jon Zerby, Elementary Principal Gary Pflueger, Post Master Dan Fleming and Fire Chief Vern Long have all volunteered to compete for votes in the Kiss for the Cure fundraiser.
Here how it works: Soroptimist ‘Pink Ladies’ Relay for Life team will sell tickets at the Soroptimist table at Marketplace this Friday morning July 17; at Kings on Saturday morning July 18 and Sunday afternoon July 19. Last chance to cast your votes will be at the Soroptimist booth at the Artist Street Fair on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning. Vote tickets are $1, 5, 10 and $20 for a potential pig-kisser.
The Grand Event is on Wednesday, July 22, during the break (between 7:30 or 8:00 p.m.) at Island Rec’s free summer concert series Music on the Lawn. All tickets will have been sold, votes counted, the pig kissers will be waiting, the winner will be announced, and the cute little pig will be kissed! (Sorry, no tickets will be sold at the event.)
We hope this will be an unusual and fun event for the community, celebrating the notoriety of the Pig War, during Friday Harbor’s Centennial, while raising much-needed funds for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life. You can also go to the Soroptimist Relay Team’s secure site to donate (click here.)
Thanks to all!
Marie DiCristina, Soroptimist
