Kiss a pig to help fight diabetes

CENTRAL ILLINOIS-- A fun fundraiser aims to educate people about diabetes and raise awareness about what it takes to fight the disease.
CENTRAL ILLINOIS--Laying a smooch on a pig doesn't sound appealing. But this little piggy is going Champaign to help fight diabetes.
The annual Kiss a Pig gala is coming up on April 4th at the Hilton Garden Inn in Champaign.
It's a chance to see what fundraiser will end up having to give a (very cute) pig a (very big) kiss.

Fundraisers will go up against each other to raise money to help with diabetes education and awareness.
And people who donate have the power of deciding which "lucky" person gets to kiss the pig, that's because the person with the most money at the end of the night gets the honor.

One of those fundraisers and a doctor at Carle who's been very active in this gala sat down with WCIA 3's Cynthia Bruno to talk more about the fun fundraiser.
