      Hy-Vee worker puckers up for pig

      It was a sight to see at Hy-Vee Friday evening.

      A crowd gathered at Hy-Vee Friday to watch Casey Higgins kiss a pig!

      The â??Kiss the Pigâ?? event was to raise money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and whoever collected the most had to kiss the pig.

      â??Our corporate office is a huge supporter of JDRF,â?? said Certified Pharmacy Technician Lora Shipley.

      â??And here in Kirksville we're trying to raise as much money as we can to help the organization help those with type one diabetes.â??

      Manager of Store Operations Casey Higgins was not too excited that he won, but he put on some red lipstick and puckered up for the pig!

      â??I think it's terrible ... no â?| it was a lot of fun,â?? Higgins said.

      â??I'm just thankful to the customers and employees for getting involved and helping us raise the money. It was a good time.â??

      The pig was brought in by Lisa and Andy Whittom.

      The store raised $366.73 for JDRF.
