The Kiss-A-Pig idea began with a Boys & Girls Club in Tampa, Florida. In 1994, Olivet Boys & Girls Club began a contest of our own. The contest began as a way to raise funds and increase the awareness of Olivet Boys & Girls Club throughout Reading and Berks County. Since the contest’s inception, Olivet Boys & Girls Club has been able to recruit local business and community leaders to compete for the “honor” of kissing a pig owned by Ms. Kim Miller. To date, the Kiss-A-Pig contest has been one of the most successful fundraisers for the Club, raising over one million dollars!
How it works
Kiss-A-Pig Candidates compete to raise the most money for Olivet Boys & Girls Club. Candidates do this by communicating with their contacts, holding contests, sponsoring events, involving their employees, friends, neighbors, vendors and others, and using their enthusiasm and creativity. The three candidates who raise the most money will kiss Miss Maycie May the pig at Olivet’s Steak & Burger Dinner on May 22, 2018.
