OMG! I just found out the winner of the ICON of HOPE project, and before I offer my CONGRATULATIONS, I want to say a huge “THANK YOU!!!!” to all who participated in the ICON of HOPE project. From beautiful drawings, to the very generous donations, the project was an amazing success! It is so nice that so many of you came out and took some extra time (which I know is hard to find) to help a great cause. With that being said, I would like to personally CONGRATULATE Becky Colson!! Becky, your picture is just amazing! When I first saw it, I was in awe!! It is truly a beautiful piece of artwork. After being displayed at the Monmouth Library this month, it is going to be on a special display at ICON Dance Complex, as the “ICON” for the ICON of HOPE project.
“Thank You” and “Wishes for a New Year” cards are going to be specially made in honor of your picture. The cards will be sent to the children of St. Jude, as well as everyone involved in the project. Personally, I am going to enlarge the picture, frame it, and hang it in my room!! It is just so beautiful, and represents so much that ICON has done for me. Once again, Congratulations Becky!! You have an amazing talent, and we are all so happy that you used it for our project!! Check it out!!
