Webster Five kicked off its 150th anniversary with a community event for its employees, its customers and the public on April 28. Along with entertainment, prizes and fun activities, the bank held a piggy bank piñata-breaking for charity. Attendees were asked to donate $1 per swing or $5 for three swings at the piggy piñata. The person who broke the piñata (the winner) selected the charity to which the funds raised would be donated. The goal was to raise at least $150, with Webster Five contributing an additional $150 to the winner’s chosen charity. The amount collected from the community was $165, and Marlene Lukasek broke the piñata. She donated the total $315 to the Boys & Girls Club of Webster-Dudley.
