Photos from the 2014 Eight over 80 Gala


Nearly 500 people came together in March 2014 for Jewish Home Lifecare’s inaugural Eight over 80: Celebrating Eight Remarkable Lives. The inaugural Eight over 80 raised more than $1.25 million and proved that aging is not something to be afraid of. We hope you will join us on March 11, 2015 to celebrate eight trailblazers who just happen to be over 80.

Honorees include:
Arlene Alda; Barbara Carroll; Charles M. Diker; Milton Glaser; Joel Grey; Irwin Hochberg; Pat Jacobs; Fred and Rita Richman

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 Jewish Home Lifecare celebrates Eight over 80. Like the teeming energy and diversity of New York itself, the variety of accomplishments and personalities of our eight honorees show us what it is to age like a New Yorker as part of this inspirational annual event.

Honor Role: 2014 Eight over 80 Honorees
