Every year, in anticipation of our “Bow Wow Brunch” event, local prominent community members volunteer to be “in the doghouse” as part of a greater effort to increase awareness and support of MHS programs and services.

Each volunteer represents one key program, and has set a goal of raising $5,000 with the support of the community – once they reach their goal, they’ll be “out of the doghouse.”

The event is April 26. If you want to help any of these folks, click on their name to go to their page! Thank you to all of our participants.
