About the Ageless Award

Each year, the Ageless Award is given to individuals who are 75 years or older, demonstrate the importance of living a purposeful life and who continue to make significant contributions to society: as volunteers, philanthropists, mentors and civic leaders. JFRF gives out this award because we think it’s important to celebrate people who have gone above and beyond throughout their lives to serve others, and who inspire people to do more in their communities.

AGE+’s annual Ageless Award Luncheon and fundraiser is our way of reminding others how important the contributions of older adults are to our communities, not only because of the work they’ve done throughout their lives, but also because of the contributions they continue to make into older age.

Ageless Award Honorees have to meet the following criteria:

  • 75 years or older
  • An individual who has made and continues to make substantial contributions to the lives of others
  • An individual who serves as a model showing that our elders are a significant part of the community fabric

The 2019 Ageless Award Luncheon was a Resounding Success!

With over 350 people in attendance and over $200,000 raised, the 2019 Ageless Award Luncheon was a true achievement! Click here for photos! 

At the event, we talked about what it means to “do something” in light of the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in our aging society. As this year’s honorees demonstrate, older adults need to be seen as vital contributors to our communities and not a burden. Thank you for “doing something!

This year, we proudly honored:
