And the winner is - JoAnn Cates, Lot 611. This was very special for JoAnn as she has been a student and participant with Don's Art Class for the past 16 years. JoAnn has helped with many art projects and is a skilled artist herself. Previously JoAnn and her husband had commissioned Don to create a painting for their home which hangs over their mantel.

ORO owes a very special thanks to Don Thomas for his wonderful contributions to ORO, including , the many residents who have benefited from his classes, and the ORO community which benefits from his art.
