Annual Canes Film Festival & Gala

Jackson Orthopedic Foundation's annual Canes Film Festival & Gala is a fun-filled celebration of student films about orthopedic health. The benefit event also features a valuable keynote message, updates on JOF's flagship programs, audience awards for the best short film, and the opportunity to socialize with great colleagues and friends.

  • Come and meet our summer students and workshop participants (from 2019 and past years), other corporate sponsors, local businesspeople, philanthropic and social leaders, underwriters, members of the community, and other guests.
  • During the opening reception, we offer a silent auction, which features unique and sought-after items, not to be missed.
  • Edibles include elegant hors d'oeuvres, wine, and other beverages.
