Giving never tasted this good.

We're growing something good.


What is Little Wonders | Locally Grown?

Little Wonders is Child Care Resources Inc.’s annual benefit to support the organization’s work on behalf of young children and those who care for and educate them.

Locally Grown – the theme for this year’s event – reflects our deep roots in the community and our ongoing efforts to nurture the seeds of early learning, to promote economic opportunity, to grow the market of quality child care, and to provide the resources children and families need to thrive.

Guests at Little Wonders | Locally Grown will experience a celebration of farm-to-table cuisine created by the Ritz-Carlton, microbrews from some of our region’s finest breweries, craft cocktails inspired by a noted Master Mixologist, live music, and the Little Wonders Auction - all hosted at the Ritz-Carlton in Charlotte.

Giving to charity never tasted this good...


Locally Sourced Farm-Fresh Cuisine

A truly exceptional farm-to-table dining experience inspired by local ingredients and crafted by the Ritz-Carlton. 


Master Mixologist inspired cocktails

A sensation experience for the tastebuds. This year's Little Wonders signature cocktail is a intriguing blend of grilled pineapple infused Mezcal, a cousin of tequila, freshly-squeezed orange juice, cayenne simple syrup, and topped with a vanilla bean foam.  It is surely a drink you won't soon forget.
