Jefferson Health's 2024 New Jersey Gala: Elevating Healthcare and Celebrating Excellence

Jefferson Health in New Jersey held its major fundraiser of the year at the Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City in late February. Some 400 guests attended the event, which raised nearly $400,000 to support Jefferson's programs and services.

A highlight of the evening was the announced winners of the 2024 Giving Tank, an initiative inspired by the popular "Shark Tank" television show. Through generous donations, the Jefferson Health Foundation - New Jersey awarded $225,000 in grants to employees’ best ideas for elevating patient care or employee well-being. The top $100,000 grant was given for anoscopy equipment and training, providing high-risk patients with more options for lifesaving cancer screenings. Four additional grants awarded ranged from $25,000 to $50,000.
