Kissing the horse for United Way

Randolph College's Kiss the Horse fundraiser ended with an epic equine smooch and a donation to United Way of Central Virginia on Friday afternoon.

Tina Barnes, coordinator of disability services and the Learning Strategies Program, was given the honor of kissing Rex, one of the horses from the Randolph College Riding Center.

All this week, Randolph College community members have voted to select a staff member or professor to kiss the horse. They placed votes by placing money in the jar for their favored contestant.

The contest raised $211.74, which will benefit United Way of Central Virginia and its partner agencies, which provide education, health care, food, and other necessities to people in need in the Lynchburg area.
