Mount Pleasant Town Planner Michael Robertson holds a pot-bellied pig as Town Manager Mac Burdette kisses it Wednesday in Town Council chambers. Town employees raised about $6,800 for the American Heart Association. Part of the fundraising effort involved town employees donating money toward having a particular employee kiss the pig. Burdette, the top fundraiser, won the honor. The Lowcountry Heart Walk takes place this Saturday starting from Liberty Square in Charleston. Registration starts at 8 a.m. with the walk to start at 9 a.m.
