Now Git Rockin'

Charlie, who knew? Charles Havekost, chief information officer at the Department of Health and Human Services, grabbed a sizzling red guitar and got the audience rockin’ with some electrifying riffs to open Federal Computer Week’s GIT Rockin’ event Oct. 19.

The evening was billed as the first battle of the government IT bands, but it was all in fun as friends and colleagues networked on the dance floor at the historic State Theatre in Falls Church, Va. The band Full Mesh received the most votes from the crowd, which bought voting tickets for $1 each. All proceeds — about $15,000 — went to the United Service Organizations of Metropolitan Washington.
