TONI and GUY Hairdressing Academy will represent Shoreline in Round 3 of Hopelink’s March Can Drive competition to help stock the agency’s food banks. The single-elimination competition continues through March 30.

In the second week of the contest, TONI and GUY Hairdressing Academy collected 489 pounds of food for a score of 48.9 – eliminating Sterling Savings Bank, which collected 131 pounds for a score of 32.75. Chuck Olson Chevrolet Kia brought in 8 pounds of food and $250 cash for a score of 4.96 and were knocked out of the competition by Jake's Kirkland/Life is Good, which collected 98 pounds of food for a score of 49.

To ensure that businesses of all sizes are able to compete on a level playing field, the competition uses a unique scoring system: the total pounds of food donated by a business are divided by the total number of employees, resulting in a competitive “score.”

In Round 3, TONI and GUY Hairdressing Academy will face off against Jake's Kirkland/Life is Good.

The 16 businesses competing in week 2 collected a total of 4,520 pounds of food and $788 in cash, bringing the total for the campaign so far to 9,455 pounds and $1,878.

Hopelink’s third annual competition is patterned after the national spring college basketball tournament, matching businesses in weekly contests to see which one can bring in the most food. Teams are bracketed together in pairs and one winner from each 2-member bracket advances to the following week.

Businesses set to face off in Round 3 of the competition:
  • 180 Degrees Chiropractic, Redmond
  • Greater Redmond Chamber of Commerce
  • Guild Mortgage, Kirkland
  • Hallmark Realty, Kirkland
  • Hancock's Bakery, Redmond
  • Jake's Kirkland/Life is Good
  • Redmond Athletic Club
  • TONI and GUY Hairdressing Academy, Shoreline
