Chris Berman

IN OCTOBER 1979—one month after its inception—ESPN hired a little known 24-year-old sports anchor named Chris Berman. For almost four decades, Berman has become one of America’s most respected, popular, and beloved sportscasters of his era. Berman has been recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, his peers and countless other organizations for his exceptional contributions to sports broadcasting. With his combination of genuine enthusiasm, knowledge and wit, he embodies ESPN in its dedication to entertaining and informing sports fans across the country. He is best known for his delivery of highlights in every sport, most notably on NFL Sundays.

Louie Van Hollebeke, Justin’s father and the co-founder of the Justin Van Hollebeke Memorial Golf Tournament, and Bill Rasmussen, Justin’s grandfather and the founder of ESPN, talk about the history of the tournament with Q13 News.

Justin’s Story

BEAUTIFUL BABY Justin Van Hollebeke appeared very healthy when he was born, but he was quickly diagnosed with a rare metabolic disorder. Seattle Children’s Hospital referred six-month-old Justin and his family to Wonderland for his ongoing therapy and support.

Sadly, Justin’s life ended just after his third birthday. The Van Hollebeke family, their friends, and Wonderland honor Justin’s memory with this tournament, which has raised over $1,000,000 to help thousands of other children like Justin and their families receive the care and support they need.

Justin’s grandfather, ESPN founder Bill Rasmussen, wanted to make the 20th anniversary of the golf tournament the best ever, so he asked for a little help from his friends.

Justin received fantastic therapy, but it was Wonderland’s emotional support of our entire family that made such an impact.
