Bringing stakeholders together


Each year, Care Ring brings together our top supporters from across the private, civic, faith, medical and corporate sectors to "Hob Nob" with us and celebrate the difference they are making in reducing disparities for, and improving the health and vitality of, underserved neighbors in our Charlotte community. Guests are treated to delicious local food and beverages, music, and a short program highlighting the work we've been able to accomplish thanks to their contributions.

Hob Nob Invite - Front

This year's 6th annual Hob Nob, presented by Atrium Health, will take place:

Thursday, October 20, 2022
6 pm to 8 pm
D9 Brewing

Free to attend

This year's theme is "Seasons of Change," to reflect how so much has changed in our lives and in our community since we last gathered in-person for Hob Nob in 2019. Thanks to your top-notch support, Care Ring has remained nimble and has evolved to meet those changes. We hope you will join us for an evening of food, fine beverages, fellowship and fun as we celebrate the difference you are making in the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors.

The Location: D9 Brewing's Outdoor Pavilion

D9 Brewing, located on the outskirts of Uptown on Brooklyn Village Avenue (formerly Stonewall Street), has generously donated the use of their spacious Outdoor Pavilion and bar service for our event. They will also validate parking for up to two hours in their garage.

The Flavors: Beer, Wine & Bites

D9 will have their delicious hand-crafted beers on tap, along with wine available for guests. Heavy hors d'oeuvres with an emphasis on autumn flavors will be served along with a sweet treat to finish.

The Sounds: DJ Sunday

One of Care Ring's own, Sunday Shobowale, will step out of his role as Community Health Worker and into his alter-ego, DJ Sunday, as he spins some lo-fi and chill tunes, along with some "old school" favorites.

The Message: Thank You!

Our Executive Director and a few key stakeholders will talk about how your support has propelled our mission forward over the past year, and what's ahead in the days to come.
