Buying a pig at the Door County Quality Market Animal Sale on Saturday night could have a tremendous impact that will be felt around the world. Sturgeon Bay’s Braelyn Staats is donating the proceeds from the sale of her pig Star to Adopt-a-Soldier Door County. Staats’ father Jason is currently serving in Afghanistan with the Wisconsin National Guard and frequently receives care packages from the organization. In her first year showing pigs at the Door County Fair, Staats is looking forward to helping Adopt-a-Solider Door County as a thank you for everything they have done for her family.
Staats and Star will first hit the show ring Saturday morning in the pig show before the Door County Quality Market Animal Sale kicks off later at 7 p.m. For many, the money earned from the sale of their animals goes towards their future college education.
