Many teachers participate in some form or fashion during the GOFA (Give One For All) season. They do everything possible to raise money for the Women’s’ Shelter and the Dorothy Day House. There are the typical ways of raising money like offering group tests, treats, or doing a fun activity in class as an incentive for donations instead of enduring another lecture. However, there are a few teachers who really think outside of the box. Two of them are Mr. Reiter and Ms. DeYoung.

These science teachers have come up with a brilliant idea: an egg roulette. This play on Russian Roulette has two teachers holding a number of eggs, based on how much money their students donate. At one of the pepfests, they will crack them over each others’ heads, but here’s the trick: only a few eggs are actually raw. That’s right, a few are hard boiled, so it is unknown if the eggs are going to break, and especially unknown to Mr. Reiter or Ms. DeYoung. That’s why you really want to pay up to build up this event for the GOFA season. The more money you donate, the more eggs they have to crack, which increases the chance of Mr. Reiter and Ms. DeYoung ending up with a scrambled mess all over their heads!

These teachers are incredible sports and and laugh off the goopy mess because they’re happy to help raise money for the charities. The Egg roulette will take place during the final GOFA pepfest, so make sure that you and your wallet are ready to help reach the goal!
