Koston and Friends Golf for a Cause

Koston and Friends Golf for a Cause
Active and Eric Koston team up in efforts to raise money for an organization of Koston’s choice

On Tuesday, July 8th, Active Ride Shop presents The Second Annual Eric Koston Invitational Golf Tournament. Last year, Eric Koston chose the Dream Center located in Santa Ana, CA as the beneficiary of the tournament. The money raised last year helped to re-build the street course at the Dream Center where hundreds of kids a week now have a positive outlet for their energy and a safe place to hang out.

“Working with Eric Koston on his second Golf Tournament is an honor and being able to give back to another great cause alongside Eric is even more rewarding,” states, Active President, Shane Wallace.

This year’s Tournament will be held at the Sierra Lakes Golf Course in Fontana, CA and will consist of over fifteen teams of four players who will play in best ball format. Some of the invitees include top professional skateboarders, as well as numerous skateboarding industry heavy hitters. Everyone from Girl Skateboards to Ogio will be involved in contributing towards this year’s beneficiary.

“The event is always a pleasure, especially on the 18th green watching TheSkateboard Mag crew and the Transworld guys bicker over who are the better golfers. They’re all old skaters that never practice,” Tim Gavin on being a second time participant in the Tournament.
