Ronald McDonald House of Chapel Hill is hosting the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce’s Business After Hours with an evening of networking and music, plus food provided by Rocky Top Catering, drinks by Bottle Rev Chapel Hill, and door prizes by Kendra Scott Jewelry. Guests will have the opportunity to check out the life-sized “grass menagerie” animals while learning about the mission of the House. Tours of the campus will be available throughout the evening.


Bring your blankets and chairs to the River Park lawn to enjoy an evening with the family to watch Disney’s “Ralph Break the Internet” on a 30-foot screen. Food and beverages will be on-site for purchase.


Dance the night away at the North Carolina Botanical Garden’s biggest fundraiser of the year, Carolina Moonlight Party. Each year the event celebrates the Piedmont region of North Carolina with signature drinks, food and fun.


Take part in the second annual PORCHfest and celebrate the enormous impact PORCH has had on distributing food to hundreds of at-risk families in Chapel Hill and Carrboro. The free event will be held on the Village Green at Southern Village, 4-8pm, with food from Town Hall Grill, La Vita Dolce, Pazzo and Rasa Malaysia. Enjoy family-friendly games and activities, live performances by local kids and musicians, and a bake sale.
