Four tournament veterans will square off in the semifinal round of Hopelink Can Madness this week. Last week, eight teams combined brought the total raised for Hopelink food banks so far to 20,075 pounds of food and $17,822.
This week, last year’s champion, Hancock’s Bakery of Redmond, will face 2015 tournament winner Xtreme Consulting Group, Inc. of Kirkland. In the other matchup, last year’s runner-up, City of Redmond, will take on perennial competitor Hallmark Realty of Kirkland. The next weigh-in will take place Friday.
The drive is patterned after the national spring college basketball tournament, matching businesses in weekly competitions to see which can bring in the most food. Teams are bracketed together in pairs and one winner from each two-member bracket advances to the following week. The competition will continue until the winner is announced April 7.
