Ageless Award

The Ageless Awards Will Be Celebrated on April 20, 2023!

This year, we are honored to celebrate the inspiring lives and contributions of Don Bruland, Ed Edmo, Robert Stoll, and Dan Steffey and Maria Rojo de Steffey. Registration to attend in-person at the Hilton Portland Downtown or virtually will open soon! Click here to add the event to your calendar.

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. AGE+ 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.
