"Pigs For Kids"

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Illinois Capital Region
Christian County Branch

During the month of August, various bars in Christian County sold paper "pigs" to hang on the walls to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters' Christain County mentoring programs. The bar that sold the most "pigs" won the "Battle of the Bars" traveling trophy and a free thank you ad in the Breeze Courier.

Congratulations to the 2008 winner The Other Bar for selling $219 worth of "pigs" and to bartender Dawn Caldwell for selling $456 worth of pigs for a combined total of $675!


"Pigs For Kids" has raised more than $8,700 for the children in Christian County!
