Four Oregonians will be honored for their inspiring contributions later in life during a free, public, virtual celebration on April 22.
The annual Ageless Awards recognizes remarkable people 75 and older who redefine societal expectations; live with purpose; and serve their communities. This year, AGE+ proudly honors Gary Maffei of Lake Oswego, Judith Ramaley of Portland, Major General R. Fred Rees of Helix, and Kathleen Saadat of Northeast Portland.
“Every person, regardless of age, has the capacity to contribute to their community. This year’s Ageless Award honorees make the best of the gift of long life and generously share it in service to their communities,” says AGE+ founder and CEO, Keren Brown Wilson.
The virtual Ageless Awards will be held April 22 from 12 -1 p.m., with a pre-show beginning at 11:30 a.m. This inspiring event is free to join with pre-registration at www.AgePlus.org.
