This is Gracie.

She was part of a fundraising effort by the New Hope Baptist Church to build a new playground.

The "Kiss the Pig" fundraiser has 3 volunteers. The congregation then donates money to one of those volunteers and whoever has the most money wins!

And their prize? A big kiss from Gracie.

"Oh they were 100% behind this because they wanted to see these people kiss the pig. And today was great. You could tell by their screams and applause that they really enjoyed it. So that was good," says Playground Committee Chairperson Betty Brent.

This effort raked in more than $1,500. It's their biggest fundraiser so far.

The church is about halfway to their goal of $13,000.
