2022 Catoctin Affair
There’s More to Do – The 24th Annual Fundraising Gala Supporting Mental Health in Frederick County
24th Annual Catoctin Affair
Saturday, April 9, 2022
Frederick Fairgrounds, Building 9
We are excited to announce the return of Catoctin Affair, Frederick’s highly regarded fundraiser. A night where the community comes together to raise awareness and resources to support the critical work MHA does each and every day. Catoctin Affair has certainly looked different the last two years but that has not prevented tremendous community support and we are thankful.
But there is still work to do. This has been a year of challenges for all of us. Despite the continued pandemic, we saw a record number of clients in-person and through tele-health, we answered over 51,000 calls in our 24-hour Call Center and provided support and resources to more than 55,000 community members. A client recently shared, “You kept me going through a very difficult time, you were my safety net.”
Join us for an elegant night of culinary excellence, a complimentary bar, an inspiring program, a live auction with a live appeal followed by dancing. Proceeds from this annual event benefit the Mental Health Association of Frederick County’s vital programs that are essential to the day to day operations of our lifesaving organization.
COVID Pandemic Safety
We can’t wait to celebrate with you. Due to on-going concerns with COVID we are strongly encouraging all attendees of Catoctin Affair to be up-to-date on their COVID vaccinations. On the day of the event if you don’t feel well or have been recently had close contact with someone who has COVID, we ask that you stay home to keep everyone safe.
We will continue to monitor the COVID metrics in the community. If we experience another surge, we will re-evaluate to ensure we can gather safely.
