Scout Boats fishing tourney to benefit charity

Scout Boats is partnering with the Dorchester Children's Center in Dorchester County, S.C., for the Scout Boats Reel-N-4Kids Fishing Tournament, to be held June 5.

The in-shore tournament proceeds will benefit the children's center, which provides a coordinated, evidence-based response to child abuse that reduces trauma and provides treatment for the children and families in the community in a safe, child-focused environment.

Scout Boats is donating a 15-foot 151 Standard (complete with Yamaha F25 engine and trailer) for the grand prize drawing, as well as $1,000 if the state record is broken while aboard a Scout.

"We're extremely humbled by the support we're receiving from Scout Boats," said Dorchester Children's Center events/donor relations contact Bob Ingram said in a statement. "We foresee a great turnout for the tournament and look forward to making this a successful event for all involved."
