Dear Friends and Family,

Real Art Ways depends on you. And we need you now.

In September, in years past, we’ve hosted fundraising events—at Real Art Ways. We’ve netted $100,000 each year.

This year we can’t be together in person. But we can be together in spirit. And we believe we can generate $100,000 to support our work.

We won’t be able to do it together in one night. So we’re taking 30 nights—the month of September—to meet our goal.

Thanks to our sponsors, the good news is... we’re nearly halfway there! And the Richard P. Garmany Fund at the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving has agreed to match your contribution dollar for dollar.

You will make it possible for Real Art Ways to survive, and thrive. Please help us meet our goal.

With gratitude,

Will K. Wilkins and The Real Team

Time to Choose

One Day Only – Wednesday, June 15, 7:15 PM

Oscar-winning documentary director Charles Ferguson turns his lens to address global climate change in a new film showing the breadth of the climate challenge, the power of solutions already available, and the remarkable people working to save our planet – from American farmers and African villagers to Indonesian anti-corruption officials and Silicon Valley entrepreneurs.

"What elevates "Time to Choose," is the sense that not only are people doing something to change the trajectory of our planet's depleted resources but that you can make a difference too."

Brian Tallerico,

"This is not a film that leaves you in hand-wringing despair. Rather it is unapologetically on the optimistic side, telling us in no uncertain terms that "we can stop climate change.""

Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"A sobering polemic about global warming that balances familiar predictions of planetary doom with a survey of innovations in renewable energy technology that hold out some hope for the future."

Stephen Holden, New York Times
