Koston Golfs for Dream Center
Koston and Active combine efforts in raising funds to help rebuild the Santa Ana Dream Center skate park
On Thursday March 8th, Eric Koston along with Active will be holding the first annual Eric Koston Invitational Golf Tournament for the benefit of the Santa Ana Dream Center. The Dream Center is a non-profit organization which is committed to helping inner city youth excel in life. “We are a place where people can come to learn, eat, and skate without the fear of gangs, drugs, or violence,” states Shane Veera of the Dream Center. All proceeds from the Eric Koston Invitational Golf Tournament will go to fund the building of the street course. Donations from the event are slated to exceed $8,000.
The Tournament will be held at the Tustin Ranch Golf Club and will consist of 13 teams of 4 players who will play in the best ball format. Some of the invitees include top professional skateboarders, as well as numerous skateboard industry movers and shakers. Everyone from Ogio to Nixon will be involved in contributing towards the Dream Center and the Tournament. “Everyone involved is proud to help Eric Koston launch his first annual golf tournament. Eric has given so much to all of us in the skateboard community and again he is extending his efforts to give even more.”
Shane Veera also stated, “This event is a very worthy event and will greatly aid in our center,s success. Active has helped a tremendous deal in this past year and has contributed clothing to hundreds of low income families in the neighborhood and has provided the youth with skate gear that the children can be proud of and helmets that were greatly needed. I’m excited for this event and my hat goes off to Eric Koston and everybody at Active who are making this happen.”
