The Frederick County Mental Health Association (FCMHA) hosts two of its biggest fundraising events every year – the Catoctin Affair and the Children’s Festival of Maryland.

These events are vital in raising funds to support the FCMHA’s programs and services. Both events are a great way to support the FCMHA and its mission of improving mental health and wellbeing in the Frederick County community. Whether you prefer a formal gala or a fun-filled family event, there is something for everyone at these two events. So mark your calendars and join us for a night of entertainment and support for a good cause.

The event attracts hundreds of guests from across the region who come together to support mental health programs and services in Frederick County. The Catoctin Affair is a wonderful opportunity to dress up, mingle with like-minded individuals, and contribute to a good cause.
