Feb. 12, 2014 - PRLog -- Coastal Georgia residents are gearing up for the three-month American Diabetes Association’s Kiss-a-Pig campaign, which will kick off with “Cocktails for a Cause” at Ruth’s Chris Lounge in Savannah on Feb.12. This event will be followed by a “Valentine’s Boxers & Boots Social” on Feb. 13 at McDonough’s. At both events, sponsor Audi Hilton Head ( from the New River Auto Mall will have new vehicles on display.

"This is our first year of sponsoring the Kiss-A-Pig campaign for the American Diabetes Association," said Warner Peacock, President & CEO of New River Auto Mall. "We're looking forward to attending all of the events and showing off our cars."

The ADA’s largest fundraiser of the year is a contest between community leaders to raise the most money over a period of three months, with the winner receiving the honor of kissing a live pig. Why kiss a pig? Because it’s recognized by the ADA as the original source of insulin.

The “Cocktails for a Cause” event is hosted by the Mad Hams, a team of local business leaders led by Larry Hodges of Radius Media Group. The event, from 4:30-7 p.m., will feature free appetizers, special $5 drinks, raffles, and a 10% discount for those who stay to dine at Ruth’s Chris Lounge.

The Phi Pigma Kappa team of Savannah businesswomen, lead by Marianne Ganem Poppell of Johnnie Ganem Wine & Package Shop, will host the “Valentine’s Boxers and Boots Social” from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb.13, at McDonough’s.

Participants are asked to bring a date or a friend, or to come alone to meet a Valentine and enjoy an evening of karaoke and prizes for best the Best Boxers, Cutest Boxers, Tackiest Boxers, and Most Fabulous Boxers Outside of Your Shorts. A fun karaoke challenge will help to raise money for the ADA.

Contact Gwen Cutlip at for information about “Cocktails for a Cause” and Marianne Ganem Poppell at to find out more about “Valentine’s Boxers and Boots Social.”

The team at Audi Hilton Head is hoping that the community comes out in full force to support the work that the American Diabetes Association is doing to raise awareness about this debilitating disease.
