More than 20 Puerto Rican artists have placed their talent at the service of the Puerto Rico School of Plastic Arts for the upcoming fund raising auction “Munny con Causa 2” to take place at Froyo World in Miramar Aug. 22 at 7 p.m.

For the second year in a row, the frozen yogurt shop will lend its facilities to exhibit and auction off a series of “Munny” dolls crafted by local artists. Proceeds from auction will be donated to the EAP’s scholarship fund. The starting price for the Munny dolls to be auction has been set at $200.

“We are art lovers and we believe that fostering our culture is part of our responsibility as business owners and members of this community. Ever since we opened the first Froyo World in 2011, we have lent our stores as spaces for artistic and cultural expression,” said  Mariangie Franco, who owns the Froyo World franchise along with husband Ricardo Lozada.

This year their goal is to surpass the $3,800 raised during last year’s edition of “Munny con Causa.” The money raised will help provide scholarships to students at the premier arts university in Puerto Rico, which has the mission to form artists of excellence and foster the value and appreciation of the arts as a cultural and humanist expression.

This year’s roster of “Munny con Causa 2” participants include established artists, School of Plastic Arts professors and students, art students, urban artists and tattoo artists.
