Ike Barinholtz, comedian, actor, writer, producer, and director, as well as a champion for our Los Angeles-based Hollygrove programs, recently competed for Pacific Clinics on ABC’s “Jeopardy! Tournament of Champions”.

Once again, he generously played for our Hollygrove programs, comprised of three innovative services – Camp Hollygrove, Hollygrove Haven and Parent Institute – which enhance community wellness for our Los Angeles-based families, parents and children.

In the quarterfinals, Ike notched his victory by betting big on the Final Jeopardy clue: “Far from Rome, this first-century poet wrote, ‘The leader’s anger done, grant me the right to die in my native country.’” (The answer: “Who is Ovid?”)

While he was eliminated in the semifinal round of play, he still made history by becoming the first “Celebrity Jeopardy!” contestant to enter the Tournament of Champions.

“We’re immensely grateful to have such a strong advocate in Ike,” says Director of Development Jasmine Cadena. “The children and parents in our Hollygrove programs, many of whom have experienced trauma and would not otherwise have access to affordable services, have benefited greatly from his generosity.”

Over the years, Ike and his wife, Erica Hanson, have been dedicated supporters of Pacific Clinics, donating their time, talents and resources to the agency and its Hollygrove programs. In 2018, the pair was honored with the Ambassador of Children Award. In 2023, Ike won $1,000,000 on ABC’s “Celebrity Jeopardy!” with guest host Mayim Bialik. In 2021, Ike also won $10,000 on “E!’s Celebrity Game Face and in 2020, he won $125,000 for the agency on “Who Wants to Be A Millionaire”. He has also hosted our annual movie nights at the Hollygrove campus and served as our master of ceremonies and auctioneer at past gala events.
