‘Tonight Show' Host Fallon Matches Gaithersburg School's Egg Roulette Fundraiser

WASHINGTON — A Montgomery County, Maryland, school caught the attention of Hollywood with its egg-stremely messy fundraiser.

Fields Road Elementary in Gaithersburg held a Read-a-Thon to help the school purchase standing desks, blue tooth speakers and more in support of its “Move More” theme.

To reach the goal of $13,000, principal Erica Williams and assistant principal Kristi Ricca engaged in the “Egg Russian Roulette” challenge, a segment frequently featured in “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.”

The school met its goal.

But there’s more. Jimmy Fallon found out about the school’s fundraiser, and with partner Reddi-whip, added $13,000 to the amount raised, making the total more than $26,000.
