2017 Tournament Recap
On June 18th 2017 at Chartiers Park in Bridgeville, Pennsylvania, S City Outdoors held their First Annual Fishing Tournament in conjunction with the Hope for Heroes Foundation. This year’s tournament was in honor of slain Canonsburg Police Officer, Scott Bashioum.
Being so moved by the senseless murder of Officer Bashioum, two local business owners, Dan and Rider wanted to give back to those Scott had left behind. Dan being a father, could not fathom leaving one child behind, let alone four, which is what sparked them to create this fishing tournament - to help support Officer Bashioum’s four children.
Attracting over fifty anglers to the park at 6:00am that morning was seen as a huge success by the two. “It came together better than we could have dreamed of” said Rider, Co-Owner of S City Outdoors. S City Outdoors would like to thank the Hope for Heroes Foundation, Buckets Charters, Mount Me Taxidermy, Railyard Grill and Tap Room, Damico Plumbing, and all of the other local sponsors and tournament participants that made this event possible.
S City Outdoors would also like to extend a special thank you to the Bridgeville Borough, particularly Mrs. Sheryl Valentino for being so instrumental in ensuring that this event was a success. S City Outdoors and the Hope for Heroes Foundation are proud to announce that by the efforts of this tournament, $2,500 will be donated to the trust fund of Scott Bashioum’s four children.
On November 6th 2017, Dan and Rider of S City Outdoors, and Mitch of the Hope for Heroes Foundation were honored to present the $2,500 to two of the children of Officer Scott Bashioum, Cole and Carson, as well as Scott's wife, Ashley. S City Outdoors and the Hope for Heroes Foundation would like to thank David Rhome, Mayor of Canonsburg for making this meeting possible.
