FLEMINGTON, NJ – A fundraiser to benefit the Leah Harms Family Fund will be held March 6 at the Stangl Factory in Flemington.
It will be Chabad of Hunterdon County’s Seventh Annual Auction fundraiser. The event will boast more than 60 prize packages valued at more than $100,000.
Chabad of Hunterdon has provided more than 135 educational scholarships over the past five years as a result of previous annual auction proceeds.
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.
