The Savannah Young Lawyers “Boar Association” is organizing a Wine, Beer and Liquor Tasting on Tuesday, April 9 from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the Rebel Room above Johnnie Ganem on Gaston and Habersham Streets in Savannah. The cost is $40.00 per person and all proceeds benefit American Diabetes Association.

The beverages are being provided by United Distributors and hors d' oeuvres are being provided by Zunzi's.

There will be live entertainment provided by Connellis, the acoustic duo of lawyers Patrick Connell and Ben Ellis.

The Young Lawyers are contestants in the 21st Annual Kiss-a-Pig Campaign, the largest diabetes awareness and fundraising event of the year. They hope to beat out other candidates vying to kiss the pig, honored by ADA as the original source of insulin.

Kiss-a-Pig is sponsored this year by Piggly Wiggly, The Kennickell Group, WTOC and WRHQ, Quality Rock, 105.3.

Funds raised during the Kiss-a-Pig campaign benefit American Diabetes Association, the nation's leading organization dedicated to curing diabetes and improving the lives of all people affected by diabetes. Diabetes is the nation's fifth deadliest disease, killing more than 220,000 Americans each year. It is the leading cause of heart disease and stroke, adult blindness, kidney failure and non-traumatic amputations.
