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
