FIRST Robotics Team 1629, the Garrett Coalition (GaCo) will be hosting a Shoe Shine and Egg Painting fundraiser this Saturday, March 28, from 9:00a to noon in front of the Board of Education Central Office Building at 40 South Second Street in Oakland.
Along with shining shoes, the team will be helping kids of all ages paint designs on eggs using  custom designed LEGO egg painting machines. The team will also be showing video from the Greater Pittsburgh FIRST Robotics Competition, where the team took first place earlier this month.

All proceeds will be used to help cover costs of the 2015 season. The team’s next competition  is at the University of Maryland’s Xfinity Center during April 3-4 and then again in St. Louis at the FRC Championship in late April.
