On Wednesday, May 29, Joey Mugica known locally to most as “The Color Queen,” will unveil the 2013 “Power 20” at the second annual Color-A-Cause at The Hoxton

This year’s Color-A-Cause will feature the “Power 20″ that represents twenty of South Florida’s most influential people. Mugica will “Color Queen” the honorees by adding his unique dose of color to original photos by Julio Martinez. Proceeds of this year’s Color-A-Cause benefits a non-for-profit called Neat Stuff for Kids that provides brand new clothing to neglected and underprivileged children.

This year Mugica teamed up with photographer Julio Martinez and artist Eleazar Delgado at  McCormick Place to create a backdrop that allowed him to capture the honorees in a non-traditional manner. The twenty honorees chosen to be “Color Queened” this year by Mugica include: Adora, Berta Bravo, Craig Stevens, Gerry Kelly, Hansell Leyva, James Cubby, Jammin Johnny, Jipsy, Lesley Abravanel, Malinka Max, Maryel Epps, Michael Gongora, Beth Sobol, Stacy Russell, “Trend Tracker” Tara Gilani, Tony Guerra, Rey Casas, Nikola Charpentier and Viviana Gabeiras.

“It has been an honor for me to shoot many people throughout the years whom I respect, admire and love,” said Mugica. “This event gives me the opportunity to showcase beauty seen through my eyes while giving back to my community,” he said.

WHEN: Wednesday, May 29 from 7:30 p.m. to 10 p.m.
