Walnut teachers kiss pig as part of Pennies for Patients fundraiser

In March, students at Logan Avenue Elementary watched as their principal kissed a pig in celebration of raising money for the Pennies for Patients drive.

Friday, students at Walnut Elementary were treated to the same sight.


Teachers Manuel Estrada and Melissa Sears both kissed a piglet... and the students reacted as usual.

Estrada's class raised $241, while Sears' class raised $286. Over $2,600 was raised in total.

Pennies for Patients benefits cancer and blood disorder research.
