John Hines, a teacher at Todd Beamer High School in Federal Way, is one of 15 contestants competing on the “Jeopardy! Teachers Tournament” this week. He’s vying for the $100,000 cash prize.

Hines’ episode will air on Thursday and to celebrate he’s planning a viewing party and a fundraiser tomorrow at the Buffalo Wild Wings in Tacoma. It will benefit the Foss High School football team which he coaches.

If Hines wins his quarterfinal match on Thursday he will advance to the semifinals and then to the two-day finals.

The show airs at 7:30 p.m. on KOMO-TV (4). Buffalo Wild Wings is at 4219 South Steele Street near the Tacoma Mall.
