While Jefferson is an academic medical center, it is also a haven of hope serving the citizens of Philadelphia, the Delaware Valley and beyond. As a nonprofit, we rely on the support of our community to make our life-changing mission possible. This page is a directory of the many events organized by alumni, grateful patients and friends to benefit Jefferson. 

Jefferson Gala

A signature event for the Philadelphia region, the Jefferson Gala is a revelatory experience — a chance to recognize our friends and family who have been leaders in discovery, innovation, clinical care and philanthropy.

Kendall’s Crusade Comedy Classic featuring Award Winning Comedian Craig Shoemaker
Valley Forge Casino, King of Prussia, PA

Benefiting AVM Research and patient care at Jefferson’s Farber Institute

In 2014, at just 10 years old, Kendall Kemm suffered a stroke, the result of a very large Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) that ruptured inside her head.  Until that time, Kendall and her family had no idea this AVM existed. Thanks to AVM research and the care she was provided, Kendall’s AVM is now 90% gone. Kendall’s Crusade is a non-profit focused on raising funds and awareness for AVM research and patient care. The organization’s event featuring award winning comedian, Craig Shoemaker, will be honoring the Jefferson Neurosurgery Team at Jefferson’s Farber Institute.
