Pinkerton to Kiss the Pig Friday

FAYETTEVILLE-University of Arkansas softball head coach Jamie Pinkerton is initiated into the Razorback fraternity when he kisses a pig. Pinkerton is one of the 16 celebrity participants at the Hooray for Hoggywood Kiss a Pig Gala, Friday, Feb. 25.

The gala is an American Diabetes Association fundraiser with dinner, auctions, entertainment and dancing at the Fayetteville Town Center at 7 p.m.

Pinkerton said he was happy to support the community and to be involved with a charity that he has a personal interest in.

“We have diabetes in our family so it’s a cause I wanted to help with,” Pinkerton said. “It’s important for us to be a part of not only the university community but also the community itself.”

Anyone that would like to make a donation to the American Diabetes Association can contact Pinkerton at 575-4959.
