HE RINK presented by UNC Health, kicks off the holiday season with a return to Red Hat Amphitheater this Saturday, November 18. Now in its third consecutive year, THE RINK presented by UNC Health is shining the spotlight on area non-profits and focusing on giving back to the community.

“Our focus when launching THE RINK three years ago, was to bring our community together after a time of being apart for so long, and wow did they show up! We're now excited to give back to that same community, by working with these non-profits to help share their missions and make the holidays brighter for all,” said Kerry Painter, Director/GM of the Raleigh Convention and Performing Arts Complex.

Throughout the months of November, December, and January, THE RINK presented by UNC Health has partnered with the below local non-profits.
