Bone and Joint Institute’s Inaugural Skeleton Gala Set for October 29

Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee (BJIT) is hosting its first Skeleton Gala on Saturday, Oct. 29 at The Factory. Proceeds from the black-tie event will benefit the Bone and Joint Institute Fund of the Williamson Medical Center Foundation.

The event, which begins at 7 p.m., will feature dinner, drinks, dancing to the sounds of Burning Las Vegas, and a silent auction. BJIT had planned to have its inaugural event in 2021 but had to cancel due to COVID. Tickets are $275 each and can be purchased at

“We’ve been planning this event for nearly three years and are excited to finally be able to get together with our co-workers, peers and friends to raise money for a great cause,” said Darren Harris, Bone and Joint Institute CEO. “Our foundation does great work in the community, and the funds from the
Skeleton Gala will allow us to extend our reach.”

One of the primary beneficiaries of the event will be the Craig Ferrell Memorial Scholarship fund. Named in honor of the late Craig Ferrell, M.D., these scholarships are given to Williamson County high school graduates who are pursuing a college degree in health sciences. Other organizations that have benefited from the Bone and Joint Institute Fund include Friends of Franklin Parks, BrightStone, Forrest Spence Fund and Deer Run Camps & Retreats.
