Rebekah Harms, Leah’s mother, said, “In January 2012, our 8 year old son was diagnosed with T-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. Three short years later, in January 2014, lightning struck our family again. Our 14 year old daughter Leah was diagnosed with Stage II-B Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. She had four masses in her body, one in her armpit, two in a chest and a very large mass in her neck. I am thankful to Chabad of Hunterdon for helping our family in 2012 when our son Matthew was diagnosed with Leukemia. I never thought our family would get struck by lightning twice.

“Our worst nightmare has come true and I am both speechless and grateful that once again Chabad has stepped up to help support our family and bring awareness to our struggle. Please do you your best to help support this year’s annual auction fundraiser.”

Though the auction prizes usually prove to be enticing, this year’s grand prize is bigger than ever. One lucky winner will be off on a private jet vacation getaway for six to the Bahamas.

Some of the other prizes include a New York City getaway, a trip for two to Israel, a drone, the newest Apple iWatch, iPhone 6S, Apple iMac Desktop Computer, Macbook Air, iPad Air 2, $1,000 Visa gift card, $1,000 at Roman Jewelers, $1,000 at Sherman Jewelers, Bose Soundlink Wireless Speaker, VIP Yankee tickets, US Open Tennis package, as well as golf packages from Trump National, Fiddler’s Elbow and Beaver Brook Country Club. A full list of prizes and raffle tickets for each prize can be found online at www.mychabadauction.com.

The auction event will feature one of Back Stage Magazine’s 10 Standout Standups John Fisch, as seen on The Late Show with David Letterman and America’s Got Talent finalist Gary Vider, as seen on Conan. The evening will also offer an open bar and magnificent food catered by Boutique Catering and Event Design.
