Happy New Year from the CCAH Family

Posted by Brittney Miles on Jan 15, 2019 9:32:12 AM

As we closed out 2018, CCAH hosted our annual Holiday Party downtown in DC at Lost Society.  There was mixing and mingling between many clients, friends and of course the CCAH staff and families. The long-time tradition was just as festive as ever with a great DJ spinning tunes, wonderful food and drink …..but most importantly – great company. We had so much fun getting to mingle with members of the great organizations we get to work with every day and really enjoyed a special evening outside of the office!  Thanks to everyone who came to celebrate the past year with us; we are so grateful for your partnership and so excited to see what 2019 brings!
