50 Over 50 Celebration Event

TUE October 25 2022

4:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.   |   Quincy Hall

Register by October 11


The 50 Over 50 list recognizes and celebrates the courageous, compassionate, and selfless acts of service by Minnesotans over the age of 50 who are giving their all as they care for others, reimagine their careers and businesses, and give hope to our communities. They don’t adhere to the belief that our capacity to blaze a trail or shake things up diminishes as we age. They’re living life on their own terms and improving the lives of others all at the same time.

Join AARP Minnesota and Pollen at Quincy Hall in Northeast Minneapolis on the evening of Tuesday, October 25, for a celebration in honor of the 2022 50 Over 50 honorees.

Thirty under thirty. Forty under forty. Twenty under twenty. We’re bombarded with lists of people under a certain age who are making significant contributions in their communities. Ever wonder why there isn’t a list of people OVER a certain age? So did we. That’s why AARP Minnesota and Pollen teamed up to create a new list. Minnesota’s 50 Over 50 is a first-of-its-kind list honoring 50 incredible individuals over the age of 50 who are making an impact in our state. People who don’t adhere to the belief that you have to be under forty, thirty, or twenty to blaze a trail or shake things up.




The final list of 50 Over 50 honorees is determined by AARP Minnesota, Pollen, and a selection committee comprised of cross-sector community leaders from across the state. These community leaders emulate the qualities we’re looking for in our 50 Over 50 honorees. They inspire others with their work, they challenge outdated beliefs, and they’ve made an impact on their community and the people who live there. All of us at Pollen and AARP Minnesota owe a great deal of thanks to our selection committee for all the time and energy they invested in helping us bring 50 Over 50 to life.

Dr. Rose Chu, Antonio Espinosa, Kevin Lindsey, Al McFarlane, Meredith Leigh Moore, Beth Parkhill, Diana Pierce, Rebecca Stibbe, Jason Swanson, and Umo Udo.
