The last line spoken in the 25th Annual Catoctin Affair video was that “Nobody has to carry it themselves if we all carry it.” Those words from DCM BioServices General Manager, Jeff Griffin, had more than 500 people enthralled and ready to support MHA. We are still inspired by the momentous generosity displayed at the 25th Catoctin Affair held in May 2023.  We are thrilled that over $290,000 was raised to support the critical programs and services needed to support the emotional and mental wellness of our community. Thanks to Ausherman Family Foundation’s generous match, over $92,000 was raised in the live appeal and $32,000 was raised during our exciting live auction! THANK YOU, THANK YOU to our community for your impact!
