Crowd Goes Crazy - In A Good Way
"This young lady, Tiffany Helton, has touched my heart along with every kind person at the Lake County fair Saturday night. Tiffany and Chase Cook her boyfriend, thru Mt. Dora FFA, raised a pig over the last year and they auctioned it off. All proceeds went to her Mother Brenda Bradshaw Helton's medical costs to cover her liver disease. The bid went up to $4 a pound and she was satisfied and shook the buyers hand and told them what she raised it for. Nearing the end of the event, Tiffany was asked to come back out and she was confused as to why. She suspected the buyer wasn't satisfied with the pig and wanted to lower the price. She came back out with the pig and the announcer told the crowd that she was raising the pig for her mom's liver expenses... Well they went crazy in there, she sold the pig for $20 a pound but that's not all, people began donating hundreds of dollars. She made over $11000 and selflessly. Donated every dollar to her mom. I believe she should be nationally recognized for her kindness. I don't know anyone in this world as special as her. I love you Tiffany Helton and Chase Cook.
