Kiss the Horse is a campaign for literacy. Prominent local business and community leaders are “nominated” to campaign for the honor of Kissing the Horse. The candidate who raises the most money has the distinguished honor of smooching Tulle El-Jamaal (AHA 1997 champion) or passing the honor to another candidate.
“We are raising money to continue the mission of the MCLC,” said Executive Director Karen Hill. “In this economy, everyone can afford to participate in this fundraiser by casting a vote for a minimum $1 donation.”
