On July 7, 2015 Jodi Dann of Beavercreek (third from left) was the proud recipient of the MAPP prize (Merchant Arts Partnership Program) at the annual Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts.
Each year a select group of merchants in the Lake Oswego area help the Festival and Lakewood Center for the Arts by providing prizes to be awarded to one lucky recipient at the conclusion of the Festival. This year's prize was a $1,500 spa/shopping spree in Lake Oswego. Included in the offering was a handmade quilt designed and created by Jeani Winterbourne, President of Umpqua Investments. The goal of the MAPP program is to promote area businesses that support the arts and to encourage the more than 20,000 visitors to return to Lake Oswego to see the variety and quality of businesses in the community.
The Festival of the Arts is an arts education event created and staged by Lakewood Center for the Arts.
The 2015 MAPP project was chaired by Sheila Johnson, Principal Broker at Realty Trust Group in Lake Oswego and Angila Petris, vice-president and branch manager, of Pacific West Bank in Lake Grove.

Co-Chair Dr. Ricky Korach commented: "Despite the record heat, more than 20,000 people turned out to enjoy the variety of art, music and food and to share their love for the arts. We are also grateful to our local merchants for their generous support of the arts at Lakewood Center for the Arts and to our many supporting sponsors who help Lake Oswego be recognized as the City of Arts."
