KB4Girls News:4th consecutive Dream Extreme Fundraising event in New York turns out a great success

Written by KB4Girls on . Posted in News

New York, September 24, 2012: The Dream Extreme Fundraising event and KB4girls female kite clinic on Long Island/New York took place for the 4th consecutive time from September 20 to 22, 2013.

Once again beautiful sunshine and the perfect breeze blessed the event and supplied the perfect conditions for the beginner and advanced kiterboarders that joined the KB4girls clinic part of the event. For the first time Dream Extreme had been opened up to male participants as well, resulting in a group of 25 female and 5 male participants that combined their forces to raise funds for STEPS to end family violence through personal fundraising pages, donations and the silent auction at the dinner and dance party on Saturday evening.

It was not only thanks to the amazing participants and donors that Dream Extreme empowered females (and this time also a few men) through the sport of kiteboarding, it was also thanks to all the incredible pro-coaches as well as volunteers that had flown in from all over the world to help and make the event happen, including Oli Berlic, Billy Bosch, Juan Carlos Morales, Marissa Dobbs, Chris Doyle, Joanna Kowalska, Hope Levin, Teddy Lyons, Sam Medysky, Jon Modica, Jason Norwood, Rich Sabo, Matt Sexton, Chris Stuckey and Terri Tapper as well as president KB4girls founder and president Kristin Boese and John Pereira from New York Kite Center who were leading the KB4girls clinic.

Non kiting guests also had a fantastic time enjoying beach activities at the beach bash and watching the pros ride and teach. The dinner party on Saturday evening topped it off with good food, great people, an amazing auction and an exciting slide show of the day’s festivities.

A huge thanks goes to organizer and Dream Extreme founder Linda Argila of Solutions New York who once again made the impossible happen and of course to every participant, coach, volunteer, donor and sponsor that helped to raise an incredible 200000 US$ for the STEPS program.
