Surfing Industry Manufacturers Association (SIMA) chief Fernando Aguerre hosted the annual Liquid Nation Ball at his oceanfront home on Sept. 17. Aguerre and his brother, Santiago, held the first Liquid Nation Ball eight years ago to benefit SurfAid International.

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.

    I do not believe any of these 13 charities are local, nor do I expect any of these monies raised will make its way back to San Diego. The headline should read "Liquid Nation Ball guests help raise money for 13 out of town charities." What they are doing may be fantastic, but it won't have a local impact.
