Liquid Nation Ball 2011

"All sand dunes started with one grain of sand. We can all start sand dunes for a better world..." - Fernando Aguerre, Co-Founder of the Liquid Nation Ball

More Social Diary Event Coverage ....HOME


The 8th Annual Liquid Nation Ball was held September 20th, 2011 at the home of Fernando Aguerre. It's the 8th time he has hosted the Liquid Nation Ball since he and his brother Santiago Aguerre founded the event.

And as always, Fernando spiced it up with his wardrobe. This year, he dyed his dollar bill / greenbacks themed trousers pink in honor of the evening's honoree, Shaney Jo Darden, the co-founder and CEO of The Keep A Breast Foundation (KAB).

And so with his renamed 'pinkbacks' wardrobe, Fernando and his girlfriend Florencia Gomez Gerbi of Greenpacha, greeted guests to his oceanfront home in La Jolla.

Among the who's who there were Lori and Bill Walton, Ed Mracek, Salem and Giuseppe Ciuffa, Cecilia and Santi Aguerre, surfing great Saxon Boucher and Lauren Otonicar of Tonic Hair Products, Lisa Colgate,  Denise and Carl Ekstrom, Lauren Gross, Stephanie Hoffman, Camille and David Saltman, Kerri and Drew Smith, and Yonan Volcani.

A celeb sighting included Sal Masakela. He's the host of Fuel TV.

And then there was of course Laker Hall of Famer Bill Walton in his cool retro tie dye shirt. For the auction, a trip with Walton to a Laker's game went for $16,000, Fernando Aguerre's 'pinkback' trousers went for $500, and Fernando Aguerre did some humanitarian shopping.

Aguerre bought the art by the Kid and Dane Reynolds, the one week 4 VIP passes to next year US Open, plus the Hurley board signed by all top 32 pro surfers.

More guests there enjoying the auction and music by Suzy Skarulis, Aguerre’s phenomenal collection of surfboards and sports memorabilia, and fine food fare by Giuseppe’s Catering, were Mandy Johnson and other representatives from SIMA.

SIMA stands for the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association, quite a collection of big surf companies. SIMA has been a major organizer and contributor to Liquid Nation Ball's humanitarian fundraising goals.

This year’s beneficiaries include: AccesSurf Hawaii; Best Day Foundation; Cystic Fibrosis Foundation; Jimmy Miller Foundation; the aforementioned Keep A Breast Foundation; Life Rolls On Foundation; Mauli Ola Foundation; Outdoor Outreach; Stoked Mentoring; SurfAid International; Surfers Healing; and The Sumba Foundation and Waves for Water.
