Restaurant raising money for diabetes group

Five Baugher's Restaurant employees are competing against each other this month to raise money for the American Diabetes Association.

Until March 31, patrons can support their favorite employee by donating money to the ADA.

The amount of money raised will determine who kisses which end of a small, live pig. The employee who earns the most money will kiss the pig's snout, while the one who raises the least amount will kiss the tail end.

The restaurant is holding the competition to raise money and also educate people about diabetes. John Jordon, Baugher's manager, noted that insulin can be made using pig organs.

The contest will conclude at 6 p.m. April 8 at Baugher's when the results are announced and the employees smooch the swine. Lunch and dinner specials will be offered that day, including pork.
