About This Quiz

Psychology says that we reach a generous age as we get older called generativity. As some of our most beloved baby boomers scale the mountain of age and wisdom, we've noticed that a lot of them have moved away from being in the public eye and straight into helping others. Throughout this quiz, you'll put together a team of baby boomer celebrities who wouldn't mind using their status to pull off the most glamorous and star-studded event in all the land! 

Charity events are a big to-do in Hollywood circles. If you're not on the list, you're not on the A-list. But all the boomers you get to choose from have already made their way through the complicated world of Tinseltown's charity circuit. In fact, they know enough about them to help you pull off the philanthropic event of the century! Your dream team is out to make a difference.

Once you've filled every position on your team, we'll know if you're closer in age to someone born at the start or the end of the generation. While age is just a number, your choices will show how many years you've had on the planet, getting others to do what you need them to do. Will we get your age right, or will you be forced to say, "OK, boomer?" Let's hit the red carpet and find out!
