Liquid Nation Ball guests help raise money for 13 local charities
Florencia Gomez Gerbi, Fernando Aguerre, Carlos Guttierez and his friend Jeanette.
At this year’s party, Shaney Jo Darden, founder of the Keep A Breast Foundation, was honored with SIMA’s Humanitarian of the Year award. KAB takes plaster molds of women’s (and men’s) torsos. These casts are a trademark of the organization and are given to fine artists to paint, and then shown in art exhibitions, and finally are auctioned off with proceeds going to KAB and other breast cancer awareness organizations.
Since 2004, Liquid Nation Ball has donated more than $1.4 million to surf-related, non-profit humanitarian organizations. The 2011 Liquid Nation Ball beneficiaries include AccesSurf Hawaii, Best Day Foundation, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Jimmy Miller Foundation, Keep A Breast, Life Rolls On Foundation, Mauli OlaFoundation, Outdoor Outreach, Stoked Mentoring, SurfAid International, Surfers Healing, The Sumba Foundation and Waves for Water.
