Kissing pigs for a purpose

HOLMEN, Wis. (WXOW) – Holmen’s Evergreen Elementary school took their commitment to fundraising up a notch Tuesday. For a little inspiration, the principal puckered up and kissed a pig!

“I have never kissed a pig before! I was joking earlier, I had been stood up by two pigs before Spot, so I was glad Spot showed up,” Principal Rachel Fawver joked.

The PTO set a $15,000 fundraising goal. That money goes towards a variety of things to benefit both students and their families.

“Our PTO pays for student assignment notebooks every year, they pay for assemblies, [and] field trips. Our parents pay none of that out of pocket, so I was definitely willing to do whatever it took to meet our fundraising goal,” said Principal Fawver.

Spot the pig came from a local farm in Holmen. The farmer himself brought Spot to the school and even gave him a bath to make sure he was all clean and ready for the big kiss.
