Release Announcement

From the official release announcement - "Support Local Nonprofits with Dark Star Cho'Gath" - including a breakdown of which charities will receive donations based on region.
1350 RP 
Available until August 10, 2018, at 11:59 PM PT 
Feed the abyss. 
We created Dark Star Cho’Gath with Bryan, a League player who visited Riot in 2017 through our partnership with The Make-A-Wish Foundation. Bryan’s wish was “to meet the creators of Riot Games and create a skin with them!” 
Look behind the scenes:"

We’re honored to be bringing Bryan’s vision into League and supporting nonprofit organizations along the way. We will donate 100% of the proceeds from this skin (as well as the icon, emote, and bundles) to our partner, GlobalGiving, who will then distribute grant funding on a proportional basis from sales in each participating region to select nonprofits around the world, guaranteeing a minimum donation of at least $10,000 (USD) to each nonprofit. The sale will run from July 13 through August 10, 2018
Afterward, the skin, icon, and border leave the shop. Dark Star Cho’Gath will eventually return as a Gemstone skin, but all other related content will only be available if purchased before August 10
Local nonprofit organizations were selected based on values shared with League players. Here’s the full list:
Listen to the final theme with Bryan’s clarinet performance:

We’d like to thank Bryan, The Make-A-Wish Foundation, and players for all their support."

In case you missed the end of the making of video, here is the latest update on Bryan's health:
