21st Annual Jefferson Gala
On Wednesday, December 6, 2023, we will celebrate not only Jefferson, but also friends like you who share our mission, and make it possible for us to improve lives.
Event proceeds will benefit the Honickman Center—our new outpatient center at 1101 Chestnut Street in Philadelphia. More than a building, the Honickman Center is a new way to deliver healthcare that’s more convenient, accessible, and customized to you.
