The Civic Ballet of San Luis Obispo has been awarded a $4,000 grant from The Foundation for the Performing Arts Center’s Clifton Swanson PAC Community Access Fund.

The grant will be used toward the ballet’s 39th annual production of “The Nutcracker.”

“It is because of these types of grants in addition to our community donors that we are able to keep the Civic Ballet of SLO alive, while giving back to the community,” said Drew Silvaggio, artistic director.

Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital just completed a communitywide effort to provide local families with a healthy breakfast during the summer months through its Healthy Over Hungry Cereal Drive benefiting The Food Bank Coalition of San Luis Obispo County.

Together, employees from both hospitals donated 1,800 servings of cereal and $1,200 to help feed local children who may be struggling with hunger during their summer break. That money will be matched by Tenet Healthcare.
