The Jefferson Gala


The Jefferson Gala is one of the highlights of our year, a chance to celebrate Jefferson’s recent advancements in healthcare, education, and discovery. At this annual gathering, we also recognize our outstanding friends—successful thought leaders, change agents, and philanthropists who are transforming the medical world—with the Award of Merit and the Achievement Award in Medicine.

The Jefferson Gala has raised over $11.6 Million in the past 14 years

Please join us on Tuesday, October 30, 2018, at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel as we honor renowned medical oncologist, researcher, and champion of the underserved, Dr. Edith P. Mitchell, and Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson. Proceeds from this year’s Jefferson Gala will benefit the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center and the Neu Center for Supportive Medicine and Cancer Survivorship. Last year’s Gala raised more than $2 million for Jefferson’s Department of Surgery Research and Education Fund and the Philadelphia Collaborative for Health Equity.
