      The egg game cracked people up at Cactus Canyon Junior High last week. The game has been played at CCJH every December since the school opened in 2010.
      The money raised from the egg game will go straight toward the Angel Tree program.
“The egg game is a great way to have fun and help others,” said math teacher Tina Jada, who runs the game each year.
      The game took place outside the cafeteria during both seventh grade and eighth grade lunch time. The egg game is a 100 percent guarantee for everybody to win. The instructions to the game aren’t very difficult as, all players have to do is pick an egg out of a container and open it. There is a small piece of paper inside of the egg which contains the name of the prize he or she won. The prizes consisted of stuffed animals, candy canes, bracelets and more.
      “I played this game a couple of times and I have became addicted to it,” said eighth grader Wendie Orozco.
      The money raised from the egg game went to a special cause called the Angel Tree. The Angel Tree is a wish-granting center for kids who can’t afford presents for Christmas. The front office staff of CCJH did a secret santa for the same cause.
      “I felt so good getting a gift for a kid in need, I almost cried,” said nurse Heather Lundquest.
      The Angel Tree was located directly in front in the office building. The tree was decorated bottom to the top with ornaments and colorful lights, as well as wishes kids made as gifts for children associated with the angel tree program.
