In 2008, the Poseiden Foundation initiated an annual event called Ladies Day held at the Mecca of Street Skateboarding, “The Berrics” located in Los Angeles, California. Ladies Day has grown into one of the largest Female Street events and features some of the best female skaters in the world including Legend, Jen O’Brien, Natalie Krishna Das, Liza Grzeskowiak, Nicol Poblete, Patiane Frietas, and Professional skaters: Samarria Brevard, Leo Baker, Jen Soto, Nika Washington, Margielyn Didal, Eliana Sosco, and Leticia Bufoni. All of the Ladies Day participants come to share in the international skateboarding community, meet & greet with amateur and professional skaters, and experience skating at the iconic private skatepark known as the largest media outlet in skateboarding. Some Ladies also come to skate in the best trick competitions to gain recognition for their skate skills on a global stage in hopes of being posted on The Berrics website and show their friends.
Programs to Benefit Foster, Homeless, and Orphan Youth
The Poseiden Foundation spreads awareness about our Youth and Humanitarian Outreach Programs during all of its events including Ladies Day. At Ladies Day, our humanitarian outreach focuses on inner-city ladies through the platform of skateboarding to teach them about confidence, community, and being "the best you can be".

The Poseiden Foundation works with its partners, other educational programs, and skate industry companies to team up on our Humanitarian Outreach Programs. Our partners donate skate products, provide venues for our programs, and financial support. Partnering enables the Poseiden Foundation Outreach Program to speak at rural Schools, visit Orphanages, and give skateboard equipment and clothing to skaters that come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.
