Celebrating Eight Remarkable Lives


Eight over 80 is celebrating what octogenarians are doing, not just what they’ve done.  They are still building, still writing, still experimenting—still making waves.  Our honorees show the world that trailblazing is ageless.

By 2030, 30% of the US population will be over the age of 80.  And it is for precisely this reason that the celebration of Eight over 80 is so timely.   Like the teeming energy and diversity of New York itself, the variety of accomplishments and personalities of this inaugural group of eight will set the tone for this inspirational annual event.
