We cordially invite you to our 14th Annual Dolores Huerta Foundation Celebrity Golf Classic on Friday, October 5, 2018 at The Links at RiverLakes Ranch in Bakersfield, California. Please join us as a golfer, sponsor, and/or donor for our most treasured annual event. Celebrities who have attended in the past include Benjamin Bratt, Rosario Dawson, Dennis Leoni, Jay Montalvo, Jose Solano, Eva Longoria, George Lopez, Esai Morales and sports celebrities such as Kenneth Landreaux and Ruben Castillo.
DHF mobilizes at the grassroots level engaging the community and developing leaders to work for positive change. Your donation will help fund our education, health and safety, equality, and civic engagement projects. This past year we were successful in making electoral voting districts more fair and representative. Our South Kern organizers delivered more than three trucks of donated clothing to needy families. Our civic engagement team is currently working to put an initiative on the ballot that would bring in more resources for schools and communities. DHF has recently enjoyed a great deal of attention and gained more support, due to the release of “DOLORES,” the critically acclaimed documentary film, produced by Carlos Santana and directed by Peter Bratt, about the life and work of DHF Founder and President, Dolores Huerta.
Now more than ever DHF is being sought to organize, unite, and address the challenges facing our communities. We sincerely hope you can join us in supporting these efforts. If you are unable to attend, you can also assist by purchasing a sponsorship. Please see the attached sponsorship opportunities to select your preferred option.
Additionally, you may donate items for our raffle and golf prizes. Donations of sports gear and memorabilia, gift certificates, and promotional items branded with your company/team logo are welcome. All donations are tax deductible.
Please share this event with your employers, family and friends.

On Thursday, April 12, 2018, members of the California State Assembly, Eloise Gomez Reyes (D-San Bernardino) and Rob Bonta (D-Oakland), will be hosting a reception at the State Capitol honoring Dolores Huerta and her lifelong commitment to justice and civil rights. The ceremony comes in light of Dolores Huerta’s recent 88th birthday on April 10 and Assemblywoman Eloise Reyes’s Assembly Bill 2644 proposing to designate April 10 as Dolores Huerta Day.
Dolores will be honored on the assembly floor followed by a few words from Dolores herself and a reception with family, friends, and members of the Martin Luther King Jr. Freedom Center to commemorate this major feat.
Dolores Huerta Day will not be a state holiday, but instead, a designated day to recognize Dolores and the labor and civil rights movements she dedicates her life to. If the bill passes, schools will be encouraged to teach their students about Dolores Huerta and her life.
“I’m happy to hear that our young learners will have the opportunity to learn more about social justice and civil rights because there is still a lot of work to do by the Dolores Huerta Foundation. We have low-income communities with inequitable representation in local education, and at the same time, they are facing tough anti-immigrant and racist rhetoric, all happening right in front of our faces. We need to continue organizing to empower communities so that they can fight for their representation, voting rights, and an equitable education to change the future for a fair and just society and human rights for all,” comments Dolores Huerta, President & Founder of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
“I believe this is a fitting recognition for someone who has dedicated her life to empowering others,” adds Camila Chavez, Executive Director of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
