Surf Industry honors Jason Mraz at fundraiser gala

LA JOLLA — Jason Mraz will receive the 2010 Surf Industry Manufacturers Association Humanitarian of the Year Award at this year’s Liquid Nation Ball 7.
Tickets are now on sale for Liquid Nation Ball 7, the official fundraiser for the SIMA Humanitarian Fund set for 7:30 p.m. Aug. 14 in La Jolla, with proceeds benefiting 13 surf-related humanitarian organizations.
“The surf community has drawn a circle in the sand and asked me to step inside of it. In this case, the circle is reserved for humanitarians and it delights me to be seen as such a person,” Mraz said. “From where I stand within that circle of stoke, I’m inspired to work harder and be of greater service. As one of hundreds of thousands to be motivated by impactful organizations such as Life Rolls on, I’m humbled to be chosen as the SIMA Humanitarian of the Year. I look forward to Liquid Nation Ball as a chance to meet my comrades in contribution, expanding and strengthening this community and raising more funds, supporting the deserving beneficiaries of the night.”

Liquid Nation Ball 7 will be held at the oceanfront home of Fernando Aguerre, where one of the best private surfboard collections in the world is on display.
The SIMA Humanitarian Fund Board of Directors aims to continue the record fundraising legacy and raise $250,000 at Liquid Nation Ball 7.
Tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis and are $300 per person. Only 375 tickets will be sold.
