2011 Dos Aguilas: A Festive Binational Celebration
photos and column by SDM Contributor Megan Blaich
The San Diego Natural History museum was a bustling hot spot on the night of February 5th. Two hundred and forty guests gathered for the ninth Dos Aguilas Binational Festival in celebration of the Museum’s successes and the achievements of this year’s honorees, Yolanda Walther-Meade and Yolanda Selene Walther-Meade.
Event co-chairs, Eleanor Navarra and Marie Tahan Daniels designed the night to showcase the rich blend of binational culture of the Southern and Baja California regions.
The Museum’s Golden Eagle Patrons kicked off the night with a dazzling cocktail reception hosted in the Museum’s “All the Glitters” exhibition hall. Partygoers mixed and mingled amongst the world’s most spectacular gems as they enjoyed epicurean tastings from local eateries such as Grant Grill and the Marine Room. Former basketball announcer and NBA all-star, Bill Walton attended the festive reception with his wife, Lori, showing their support for the Museum’s work.
The event transitioned upstairs where elegantly dressed guests experienced a spectacular movable feast provided by notable culinary masters from both Mexico and California. Among the many restaurants represented were Nobu San Diego, Tommy V’s, and El Rey Sol. The musically talented Los Reyes Del Ritmo entertained the supporters as they dined on the gourmet assortment.
The night heated up with an impressive Malashock Dance Performance followed by a welcome from the event’s co-chairs, a touching tribute to the 2011 Dos Aguilas Honorees, and a live auction where supporters had the opportunity to purchase items such a trip to the Galapagos Islands and a pair of breathtakingly beautiful Tahitian South Sea black pearl earrings from Atelier Marisa. The auction raised funds for the continuation of the San Diego Natural History Museum’s binational research and education programs.
Guests, including LA Clippers player, Jarron Collins and his wife Elsa spent the remainder of the evening dancing to Grupo ODESSA in the Museum’s atrium. This year’s Dos Aguilas was followed by an “After-Party Soiree” that featured tasty dessert stations from Allure Chocolat and Cupcake Love accompanied by continued music and dancing for all!
