Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Hosts 33rd Annual Golf Tournament in Hyannis Port

NEW YORK, September 29, 2022Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights will be hosting its 33rd annual golf tournament on Friday, October 14, at the Hyannisport Club in Hyannis Port, Mass.

Kerry Kennedy, president of Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights, will be joined by a number of special guests from the worlds of sports, entertainment and politics, as well as several members of the Kennedy family.

The Hyannisport Club is less than a mile from the Kennedy Compound and has been a favored venue for the family for generations. The annual golf tournament supports Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights’ mission for equality and acceptance, powering the organization’s social justice and civil rights work around the globe.

“As a decades-old tradition, the RFK tournament is an opportunity for our community of supporters to come together in a place near and dear to my family for a day of camaraderie on the links,” said Kennedy. “The consistent generosity of these donors and friends allows us to continue our work – building the more just, peaceful world my father envisioned. A world wherein everyone is afforded fundamental human rights.”

This year’s event is made possible by Nike and many other corporate and individual supporters. Proceeds from the tournament will fund programs at RFK Human Rights that protect and advance human rights.
