Ageless Awards Honor Oregonians Who Redefine Age

9th Annual AGE+ Event to be held April 22


Four honorable Oregonians will be celebrated for their inspiring contributions later in life during a free, public, virtual celebration Thursday, April 22, 12-1 p.m. (Pre-show at 11:30).

The only event of its kind in Oregon, the 9th 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.

This inspiring event is free to join with pre-registration required at

“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 others,” says AGE+ founder and CEO, Keren Brown Wilson.

Oregonians are living longer. In less than a decade, people aged 65+ will outnumber those 18 and younger, according to the March 2021 population forecast by Portland State University's Population Research Center.

The Ageless Awards were founded in 2013. Previous honorees include Sec. Bev Clarno (2020), Bernie and Bobbie Foster (2019), Gert Boyle (2018), Governor Ted Kulongoski (2018), Senator Margaret Carter (2017), Rabbi Joshua Stampfer (2017), Governor Barbara Roberts (2016), Gerry Frank (2015), and Kathryn Jones Harrison (2015), among others.
