The 14th annual Cabarete Butterfly Effect Event took place from July 6-9, 2022. RealtorDR sponsored the event for a second time and our entire team took part in the 4 day event.
The Butterfly Effect is first and foremost a non-competitive event that celebrates and empowers women through water sports, group activities, and a leadership panel that changes each year. Secondly, the event is a fundraiser that benefits a non-profit organization that does great work in the community: The DREAM Project.
All women are invited to participate in the Butterfly Effect and join a legacy of women and girls who have been a part of this worldwide movement.
We are proud to share that the organizers of this 14 year old event, 2 pioneers of the Cabarete community, Michelle and Audrey, are now a part of our RealtorDR sales team. Michelle is the owner of Andari Spa. Audrey is a fitness and nutrition expert at BlossomFitLife in addition to being a water sports master.
The Event kicked off with an inscription party at local Bar Restaurant where one of our agents, Audrey Meyer, operates her kite and windsurf school called Vela. The next day there was a beach cleanup at the surf beach Playa Encuentro followed by a group surf session. On Thursday there was a women in leadership talk, the topic was “self love” and amongst the speakers was a lawyer turned makeup artist, successful multiple business owner, a clinical psychologist, and an expert in Ayurveda and natural medicine. The Friday there was a sunset Catamaran tour and finally on Saturday the full event.
The Butterfly Effect main event starts with a group yoga class at Millenium Resort Hotel and Spa, then the group is transported to the river where there is an easy downriver stand-up paddle board down to where the river meets the ocean. From there, an advanced windsurf/kitesurf downwinder group rides the ocean back to Millenium where there is a pool and pizza party. Later that night, a nice dinner at upscale restaurant.
