The Big Top is Back!

Back by popular demand, Care Ring’s Gala, UNDER THE BIG TOP, presented by Wells Fargo, returns on April 25, 2015 at The Hilton Charlotte Center City. Step right up to experience the nostalgia of the circus and a phenomenal evening of thrills, spectacle, and breathtaking fun!


Join us for an all-inclusive evening of delectable dining, open bar full of spirits, dancing to the music of Mo Money and fabulous silent and live auction finds. There will also be creative performances throughout the evening.

Toss your hat in the ring to raise funds to support Care Ring’s three top-flight programs: Physicians Reach Out, The Low-Cost Clinic and Nurse-Family Partnership. We will all come together to empower individuals with limited resources to establish and maintain good health.

Attire: Black-tie optional. Vintage, couture, circus-inspired costumes and accessories welcomed!


Our 400 gala guests will include healthcare professionals and medical vendors who participate in our programs. Come network with philanthropists, business and community leaders, and meet Care Ring’s investors such as OrthoCarolina, Wells Fargo, Charlotte Radiology, McGladrey, SunTrust, etc. We are interested in working with your company too.
