john sasakiHonorary Chair, John Sasaki

LOV is proud to announce our Honorary Chair for this year’s tournament.  A native of the Bay Area, John Sasaki was a news reporter for KTVU since 1996 covering most of the region’s major news stories.  He was the first KTVU reporter to cover San Francisco’s move toward allowing same sex marriage. He reported extensively on the problems of patient and staff safety at the Napa State Mental Health Hospital, winning an award from the Radio and Television News Directors Association for the coverage.  He went to Sandy Hook Elementary School just hours after the horrendous shooting happened, covering it for 4 very long and very sad days. The news he covered was not all bad. Far from it.  He covered the Raiders in the playoffs and the Super Bowl in 2003 and all 4 of the World Series appearances of the Giants (he’s a lifelong Giants fan).

 

John isn’t all about his years of work at KTVU.  He has found time to work with dozens of nonprofit organizations most closely with Special Olympics for more than 20 years, often emceeing the Summer Games Opening Ceremony and always leading a team plunging into San Francisco Bay or Lake Tahoe during the Winter to raise money to help the athletes. He has also been involved with the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Youth Uprising, The Taylor

Family Foundation, the Child Abuse Prevention Council, the Berkeley Athletic Fund, Stand! For Families Free of Violence and San Francisco’s Cherry Blossom Festival.

We really appreciate John coming to our tournament, playing a round of golf and getting to know everyone at the dinner.  If  you don’t play golf – come to dinner where John will talk a little about life as a TV news reporter.

LOV is pleased to announce a special guest for this year’s 18th Annual Frank Sisk Classic Golf Tournament!
