Each year, the extended Jefferson family gathers together to look back on the year’s shared success and ahead to our new dreams. This tradition began in 2003 and we will be embarking on our 15th Annual Jefferson Gala this year. Over the past 15 years, the Jefferson Gala has raised over $12.9 Million.
At Jefferson, we improve lives. The generosity of our philanthropic partners enables us to do this exceptionally well. It is the fuel that powers Jefferson to ever greater heights in the firmament of excellence.
