More than 425 supporters attended the recent 2023 Jefferson Health – New Jersey Gala held at Atlantic City’s Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa. The fun-filled event raised nearly $600,000 to support various programs and services.

The Gala was certainly was a night to “celebrate good times.” From the amazing music of Kool & The Gang to the overall feeling of gratitude, the mood was upbeat and joyous.

While there were several highlights of the evening, the announcement of the winner of this year's Giving Tank was undoubtedly one of the most memorable moments—especially since both contestants were “winners” thanks to the generosity of Bruce Paparone. In addition, the projects were so inspiring that others offered their kind support, including the Silvestri, Durante, and DiStanislao families.

Another notable moment of the night was when Tony Luke shared his family's experience with Jefferson's dedicated caregivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. His moving and inspirational story left a lasting impact on everyone present, showcasing the incredible work that Jefferson's medical professionals do each day.
