On March 5, nearly 500 New Yorkers came together to honor 84-year-old LGBT trailblazer Edie Windsor, who was among those celebrated at Jewish Home Lifecare’s “Eight Over Eighty” gala in New York City, held at the Mandarin Oriental New York.

“With 30 percent of the U.S. population expected to reach 80 or older by 2030, this exciting new event is especially timely,” said Dr. Audrey Weiner, President and CEO of Jewish Home Lifecare. “Perhaps more importantly, ’Eight Over Eighty’ captures what Jewish Home Lifecare is all about — celebrating the vitality of older adults, honoring their lives and respecting their individuality. We look forward to many more years of ’Eight Over Eighty’ tributes, both at gala events like this and in our interactions with the men and women for whom we are privileged to care every day.” Click here for full article.
