Thank’s for the Tipps! The Youtube Video above is the championship round of 2020 Marble Leaguethat has been played online in the past two months. TV personality John Oliver – who host “Last Week Tonight” on HBO – sponsored the season. This enabled large donations to non-profit organizations as “race win” – and today on behalf of the race winner (we won’t spoil it for you if it’s on your watch list) West Seattle Food Bank was announced as a recipient of a donation of $ 5,000. You can see the (short) announcement at 3:07 p.m. in the video.

You may remember the WSFB has cranked celebrities up before – for example, in 2016 we covered a big night for the grocery bank during one Bruce Springsteen Concert, with fans donating Eddie Vedder (who sang with The Boss). And you can always help the grocery bank – via this link.

MONDAY PS We asked the WSFB if ​​there was a backstory about how they were selected – but it’s a mystery. (We will see if we can find a contact person for the generous team.)
