Additionally, Head to Hollywood will make a special purpose grant of $50,000 to the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles to fulfill the wishes of children with life-threatening brain tumors. Head to Hollywood's team of volunteer directors has also pledged to continue their mission as volunteers for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Greater Los Angeles.
"We are excited to have Ken Baker supporting our wish-granting efforts.

In 2005, Baker founded Head to Hollywood (H2H), a nonprofit organization that provided comfort, escape, and emotional healing to brain tumor survivors and their families in the form of access to star-studded events, concerts and parties, movie and TV studio tours, and pampering at celebrity spas and beauty salons.
As a pituitary brain tumor survivor himself, Baker wanted to "give back" to those battling brain tumors through his charity foundation. Now, he says he wants to expand that spirit of philanthropy to help even more children.
"By joining forces with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, I know that I can expand on my passion of wish-granting and bring comfort to many children battling life-threatening medical conditions," Baker said.
Heart of San Francisco Aikido :: Instructors, 15 June 2014 [cached]
Kenneth Baker, 3rd dan
"Not long after beginning to practice, I heard aikido described in terms that chimed with what I had initially been looking for - 'exercise with meaning.' Kenneth Baker That meaning has been unfolding in my experience on and off the mat ever since. Introduced to aikido by a dancer/performance artist friend, Kenneth has practiced since 1978 (with a six-year hiatus in the '80s), including sustained training with senseis John Saviano, David O'Neill, and Penny Sablove.
Kenneth has taught aikido in San Franciso for more than 15 years, at Aikido In and Heart of San Francisco Aikido. He offered a for-credit course, "Aikido as a Critical Path," at California College of the Arts from 1999 through 2005. Art critic for The San Francisco Chronicle since 1985, Kenneth has also published two books on 20th century art.

Rev. Kenneth Baker, S.J. Father Kenneth Baker was born on Nov. 12, 1929 in Tacoma, Washington. On Aug. 15, 1947, he became a Jesuit novice. On the Feast of the Assumption 1949, he took his perpetual vows in that great religious order. On July 26, 1960, the Feast of St. Ann, Father Baker was ordained to the Sacred Priesthood at Holy Trinity Church, Innsbruck, Austria.
In 1961, Fr. Baker was awarded a Licentiate in Theology and returned to the United States, where, shortly thereafter, he received his Ph.D. from Marquette University, having concentrated on Sacred Scripture.
Father later taught as Assistant Professor of Theology at Gonzaga University. There and at the Jesuits' parish in Spokane, Fr. Baker courageously defended Pope Paul VI's 1968 encyclical, Humanae Vitae, at a time when it was under intense attack from dissenters.
On Feb. 1, 1970, Fr. Baker became president of Seattle University, a post he held for nine tumultuous months during the Vietnam War and U.S. invasion of Cambodia. During his stay at the University, Father was frequently threatened with assassination by war protestors amongst the student body.
In April 1971, Fr. Baker became editor of Homiletic and Pastoral Review, a monthly for the Catholic clergy. In 1975, he also became director of Catholic Views Broadcasts, Inc., which produces the radio program, "Views of the News". Fr. Baker still holds these posts.
At present, Fr. Baker also serves the people of Our Lady of Fatima Chapel in New Jersey, as well as offering the Traditional Mass at St. Agnes Church, New York City.
