Port Washington State Bank named major sponsor of Mel’s Pig Roast


Mel’s Charities Inc. recently announced that Port Washington State Bank will be the major sponsor for this year’s pig roast. The signature event, which began in 1999, has been the building block for a growing list of events run by Mel’s Charities each year. PWSB Senior Vice President James Schowalter said the sponsorship aligns perfectly with the bank’s philanthropic history, including donating more than $250,000 within seven communities last year and employees giving more than 1,000 volunteer hours in nonprofit and civic endeavors. “We have always appreciated our long-term relationship with Port Washington State Bank,” Mel’s Executive Director Tom Stanton said.

    JACK HENKEOzaukee County News Graphic Tom “Mel” Stanton shared an interesting story on Facebook the other day.
