IDEAS also held a silent auction and provided light hors d’oeuvre for all attendees.

Thank you to everyone who attended our fundraiser. As always, we appreciate the continued support of our friends and leaders at home and abroad. Because of you all, we are able to make IDEAS happen. And a special thank you to the Orlando Light Brigade for their continued support. They have been a great partner of IDEAS for creating awareness in the Central Florida community.

Disruption synopsis:
Through a relentless investigation to find the answer, Disruption takes an unflinching look at the devastating consequences of our inaction.

The exploration lays bare the terrifying science, the shattered political process, the unrelenting industry special interests and the civic stasis that have brought us to this social, moral and ecological crossroads.The film also takes us behind-the-scenes of the efforts to organize the largest climate rally in the history of the planet during the UN world climate summit.

This is the story of our unique moment in history. We are living through an age of tipping points and rapid social and planetary change. We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation that can do something about it. The film enlarges the issue beyond climate impacts and makes a compelling call for bold action that is strong enough to tip the balance to build a clean energy future.
