Actor Hill Harper will pick up an award and comedian J.B. Smoove will deliver some laughs at The Boys & Girls Club of Mount Vernon’s upcoming gala dinner.
Harper will be presented with the Humanitarian Award for his ongoing work with underprivileged youth. Honorees will also include Mount Vernon-raised NBA legend Earl Tatum, who will receive the Notable Alumni Award.
The annual fundraiser, taking place at March 25 at the Surf Club in New Rochelle, will feature a comedy performance by Mount Vernon’s own Smoove. (See: J.B. Smoove on Mt.
