Ladies & Gentlemen, Welcome to The Ritz!

The Ritz-Carlton Hotels are famous. Even if we abbreviate to say “The Ritz” most people will know what we are talking about. The luxury hotel chain was originally established in 1983 in Boston, Massachusetts and now has 91 hotels worldwide in 30 countries.

The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte has been in the huddle with our organization for several years, helping us with our annual Dream Gala and Dream Kids Billy, Joseph and most recently, Brody. Each time they have delivered the “Gold Standards,” giving our Dream Kids and their families the best possible experience. They have provided more than just a place to stay, they’ve provided VIP treatment.

As a Charlotte-based nonprofit we rely on companies to extend their community goodwill and help make sports dreams possible for local kids living with chronic illnesses, developmental disabilities or life-altering conditions. The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte, has given generously however, they don’t stop there. They always add that “touch of class” to everything, going above and beyond to remind these deserving kids that people, companies and more importantly, their community cares.

The Ritz-Carlton sets the gold standard for service. Their hospitality and graciousness were on full display as they inspired a day to remember for one incredible boy and his family! – James Metsger, Pastor & Dream Leader

Whether you are visiting Charlotte from out of town or you are taking a luxury “stay-cation”, consider doing it in style with a company you can feel good about – we promise you won’t regret it! Take a look at some of the special ways that the team at The Ritz-Carlton, Charlotte has huddled up to support our Dream Kids.
