ANNANDALE, NJ - Chabad of Hunterdon County will be holding its Eleventh Annual Auction fundraiser March 1 at the Beaver Brook Country Club. The event will boast gourmet food, a comedy show and more than 50 prize packages valued at more than $100,000.
Headlining at the event will be internationally famed comedian Steven Scott, As seen on TV and stages from Broadway to the Las Vegas Strip, Steven has worked with some of the biggest names in show business on both stage and screen where he has traveled to all 7 continents; performing theaters, comedy clubs, conventions, cruises, colleges, festivals, roasts, military bases and made numerous TV & radio appearances from Comedy Central to his recent standing-ovation performances on America’s Got Talent.
