34th Annual Geraldo Rivera Golf Classic To Honor Lynne & Michael And The Koufakis Family

The 34th Annual Geraldo Rivera Golf Classic takes place at the Old Westbury Golf & Country Club, Long Island, NY, on Monday May 16, 2022. Charity founder Vicki Schneps and the event’s host, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning journalist Geraldo Rivera will kick off the golf classic with a brunch before the golfers tee off at noon. Honorees for this year’s event are Lynne & Michael Koufakis and the Koufakis Family of Star Automotive Group.

For decades, the groundbreaking Golf Classic and other high-profile events have helped bring hope and light to this once-marginalized population. The Life’s WORC team has been together since Geraldo’s critically acclaimed series exposing the deplorable conditions at the Willowbrook State School on Staten Island in January 1972, a half century ago.

Super-stars like John Lennon, Yoko Ono, Stevie Wonder, John Denver, and the Allman Brothers Band have all contributed with their talent and generosity. Like their concerts, charity boxing matches filled Madison Square Garden and brought thousands in celebration in Central Park. These events, including for the last 34 years the Geraldo Rivera Golf Classic, have raised millions and helped improve the lives of countless thousands.

The event begins with 10:00am registration, brunch at 10:30am, the golf tournament at 12:00 noon, followed by cocktails and dinner at 5:30pm. Donations to continue the noble work of Life’s WORC are always welcome. For more information, please visit
