TD employee Moira Pichinte helps cool off TD manager TJ Marinelli during Friday’s fundraising efforts.

Staff at the Toronto Dominion Bank on King Street in Chatham held a barbecue and dunk tank event Friday in front of the bank and in the adjacent parking lot.

People could stop by to buy a hot dog or sausage, and try their luck at dunking a bank manager.

The managers were in suits they’d purchased at a local thrift store.

Funds raised by the event are going towards the YMCA’s Strong Kids campaign. Through a series of summer events, TD wants to contribute $3,000 towards the campaign.

Chris Prince, community engagement co-ordinator for the Chatham Y, said this year’s fundraising goal for Strong Kids is $106,500. To date, they’ve topped $60,000.
