Miami celebrities, socialites and other notables turned out at a party recently to honor Color Queen Joey Mugica’s “Power 20.”
This was the second annual “Color-a-Cause,” which is Mugica’s way of both honoring Miami’s worthy notables and doing fundraising for a worthy cause.
This year, Mugica worked with photographer Julio Martinez and artist Eleazar Delgado to create unique images of the 20 honorees. Those chosen were Adora, Berta Bravo, Craig Stevens, Gerry Kelly, Hansell Leyva, James Cubby, Jammin Johnny, Jipsy, Lesley Abravanel, Malinka Max, Maryel Epps, Michael Gongora, Beth Sobel, Stacy Russell, Tara Gilani, Tony Guerra, Rey Casas, Nikola Charpentier and Viviana Gabeiras.
They were mostly entertainers, the media, politicians, philanthropists, socialites and other notables that Mujica has known over the years. “It was been an honor for me to shoot many people throughout the years whom I respect, admire and love. This event gives me the opportunity to showcase beauty seen through my eyes while giving back to the community,” Mugica said.
The event took place at the Hoxton in downtown Miami on May 29. The entertainment included vocals by Maryel Epps.
This year’s beneficiary was Neat Stuff for Kids,” a nonprofit organization that provides brand new clothing to neglected and underprivileged children.
