We are pleased to announce that this year’s OctoGala, GitHub’s annual black-tie charity event, will take place on September 19 at the Fairmont Hotel.

Tickets are $100 for a single ticket, and $175 for couples. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Year Up, this year’s charity of choice.

Year Up’s mission is to provide young adults in low income and marginalized communities with the skills and support that they need to reach their full potential in their professional careers. Participants in Year Up’s program are taught technical skills such as programming, in addition to communication techniques that will enable them to succeed in the workforce. We admire their vision and think it’s in perfect alignment with GitHub’s goal of helping people to work better, together.

So dress to the nines, grab a date (or just rock it stag), enjoy a drink and dance the night away in the Crown Room, featuring a stunning, panoramic view of San Francisco. We’ve got some special stuff planned – can’t wait to see you there!
