FANNING SPRINGS, Fla.-- A young North Central Florida girl is using her experience with animals to help a friend in need.
Regan Varnes is a 4th grader at Chiefland Elementary School and is a part of the Kountry Bumpkins 4-H group. She is raising a pig called Socks, as part of a project. After hearing her friend was suffering from cancer, she decided to give all the money she would make from auctioning off her pig to help her friend. Once she announced this. some people in the Tri-County community rallied behind her.
"It was humbling," said Karen Tillis, one of the people at the auction who bought into Socks. "I thought that it was amazing how our community came together to support this little girl."
The sale for Regan's pig will be kept open for donations until the end of the auction on Friday.
