Uber Hooks up with Pencils of Promise Multi City Challenge!

< We can rock your event too! > Uber is getting involved in making events around the city awesome and spicing up the local transportation options for your event’s attendees. If you’re involved with an organization planning an event, we’d love to be a part of your special night. Please email (events@ubercab.com) for more information around how we can be involved! Love, The Uber Team


You may have read that Uber was involved with the Samasource GiveWork Gala on Thursday night in downtown San Francisco. The event successfully raised the non-profit $171,000 & that was matched by an anonymous $100,000. Overall, an extraordinary night for the charity and we were honored to be a part of that .

This Saturday evening, we’re helping out another charity called Pencils of Promise, by providing discounted transportation to attendees. We’re stoked to be able to help such a cool, innovative, and impactful organization. We’re finding helping with events to be a fun (and sometimes truly rewarding) opportunity for us to provide quality service. Anyone who’s planned an event like this knows that it’s all about the details and we’re happy that we can help add some flavor to the ‘to & from’ travel!

Here’s a bit more info about the Pencils of Promise event (Sign up for the SF event here).
