The Rotary Club of Harrisburg is one of 34,000 Rotary clubs now located in over 200 countries. Our centennial anniversary of service to the local and global community was celebrated in May, 2011. Locally, since 2001, RCH has provided over $247,800 of support directly to the Harrisburg School District, Harrisburg school student college scholarships, Ecology scholarships, scholarships to the Rotary Leaders Conference, and countless volunteer hours for these and other youth focused projects, including 300 students that received free vision screening.
The Kiss a Pig contest is a fundraiser for the Rotary Club of Harrisburg to benefit the Club's international projects including clean water initiatives in Haiti, dental projects in the Dominican Republic and other efforts. We've enlisted the help of six Club members who will compete for the honor of placing their mouths on some pre-mature breakfast. That's right, the winner of this contest will "Kiss A Pig!"
Our six lucky contestants will have until March 30th to raise more money than their fellow Rotarians. And the one that does raise the most, through either their own doing or shrewd manipulation of their competitors will be forced to "Kiss A Pig!"
The pig kissing will commence at a special BBQ luncheon event, open to the public, on May 4th at the PA Farm Show Complex. Tickets are $25.
