Entertainment luminary Clive Davis, political trailblazer David Dinkins, philanthropy stalwart Elizabeth McCormack, academia leader Vartan Gregorian, and four soon-to-be-named dynamic individuals who keep making a difference at age 80 and beyond.
What does it mean to Age Like a New Yorker? We celebrate eight remarkable lives that answer that question at our fifth annual “Eight Over 80” benefit, raising funds to support The New Jewish Home’s vital programs. “Eight Over 80” lauds the creativity and significance of the over-80 generation—something our honorees demonstrate every day. Be a part of the big night at the Ziegfeld Ballroom for all of these accomplished honorees, and a tribute to our retiring President/CEO, Audrey Weiner.

The New Jewish Home is committed to transforming eldercare for New Yorkers so they can live meaningful lives in the place they call home.
“Eight Over 80” celebrates life and aging in an entirely new way, just as The New Jewish Home is transforming eldercare as we know it. Serving New Yorkers of all faiths and ethnicities for nearly 170 years, we are one of the nation’s largest and most diversified not-for-profit geriatric health and rehabilitation systems.
We are dedicated to providing high-quality care and nurturing meaningful life, and we do more than you know to bring excellence to the areas of short-term rehabilitation, long‐term care, senior housing, and home health programs — including operating the nation’s only substance abuse recovery program in a long-term care setting.
We’re forging new ground in applied research and technology and models of care, and we’re training the next generation of healthcare workers — helping hundreds of young New Yorkers graduate high school, go to college, obtain certification, and begin meaningful careers.
And all of this needs your support to succeed. All of this is what distinguishes us from other eldercare providers. And all of this is what “Eight Over 80” helps to sustain.
