SureShade received a citation from the office of Philadelphia City Council in recognition of the retractable sunshade systems maker’s work, dedication and service to the city.
Presented by Jonathan Todd, director of talent development with the city’s Department of Commerce, the citation was awarded to SureShade co-founders Ron and Dana Russikoff during a Democratic National Convention event that was designed to get delegates out on the water.
SureShade is a designer and manufacturer of patented retractable sunshade systems for the marine industry.
“On behalf of Council President Darrell Clarke, Councilman Bobby Henon and the city of Philadelphia, we’d like to express our sincere appreciation to Ron and Dana Russikoff, founders of SureShade (The Shady Side of Boating), for their hard work, dedication and distinguished service to the City of Philadelphia,” the citation read, according to a statement.
The citation was presented during the National Marine Manufacturers Association Day on the Water event during the Democratic convention, which was held in SureShade’s hometown of Philadelphia at Penn’s Landing on the Delaware River.
As one of the event partners, SureShade hosted local, state and federal elected officials on its new demo boat, Shady Lady, for more than a dozen cruises along the Delaware River to help showcase the Philadelphia waterfront and the economic importance of the recreational boating industry.
