LSU Rotaract Club
Rotaract LSU is very excited for its annual "Kiss the Pig" event, benefitting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society! Last year's event raised $2,059.54 --one of our greatest achievements to date! This year, we hope to reach a similar benchmark; but to do so, we need your help!
How It Works:
"Kiss the Pig" is Rotaract's annual fundraiser benefitting the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; every donation counts as a vote towards one of our candidates kissing a real, live pig in Free Speech Alley in front of the LSU Student Union. So, who do YOU want to see Kiss the Pig?
You can donate money generally or use it to "vote" for an LSU celebrity to kiss a pig on April 8th at 12:30 in Free Speech Circle by next to the Union. We have several candidates who have agreed to kiss the pig this year under the following categories:
-The T-rex Guy (guy who dances like a T-rex at football games)
-Mike the Tiger (the mascot, not the real tiger)
-SGA President John Woodard
-Miss LSU 2014
-Dylon Hoffpauir (cheerleader)
-several gymnasts from the LSU gymnastics team
If you would like to vote for one of these individuals, put their name in the final box you come to when filling out the billing information. It will ask if you want to give credit to a student or teacher, and this is where you put the name of the person you want to see kiss a pig.
Where Your Donation Goes:
Funds raised through programs like Kiss the Pig enable the discovery and delivery of therapies that improve the quality of life for patients. In fact, of the 67 new cancer drugs approved by the US Food and Drug Administration since 2000, almost half were approved as significant treatments for patients with blood cancers—and many are now being tested for use in other cancers and diseases.
