Forty local organizations awarded Chicago’s Cultural Treasures Grant

The Red Clay Dance Company has been a cultural institution for 14 years. Vershawn Sanders-Ward is the Artistic Director and CEO of the Red Clay Dance Company. She was very excited when she heard about Chicago’s Cultural Treasures, because she heard about the National grant that the Ford Foundation launched from her mentor at the Ballet Hispanico.
