Geekbound on September 28 is a geekware fashion show celebrating nerd culture at Fremont Foundry in collaboration with Outsider Comics and Geek Boutique. Geek fashion designer Catherine Elhoffer is bringing her collection to Seattle from Los Angeles and models of all ages, genders, and body types will be strutting down the runway to showcase designer geekware. Guests can mingle with designers and comic artists, immerse themselves in the world of VR, and enjoy delicious food and drink. Volunteers will be helping make this event a success!

The Nonprofit Partner that this event supports: TWIF! (That's right, it's us.)

Why you are needed: This event is a fundraiser for TWIF and it wouldn’t be possible without you!

Age requirement: 21+

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Who can sign up for this event? Anyone is welcome to volunteer for our events. There’s no long term commitment and you’re welcome to sign up for just one event, or multiple events that fit your style. Once signed up, you’ll be kept in the loop on all event details and what to expect via email and text communication from our team.

  • Can I sign up my group? If you are interested in signing up 4 or more people for a volunteer event, we ask that you contact us instead of registering here.

  • Can I bring a friend? Of course, the more, the merrier…. but we do ask that your friend register for the event. Those not registered for the event will be turned away.

  • How do I find the group? Enter through the front door of Fremont Foundry and your TWIF Lead will be waiting for you!

  • What is a TWIF Lead? At every TWIF Volunteer event, you will find someone, called a TWIF Lead, that is trained to facilitate the group. They are your event host, if you will, and are there to help make sure you have a great experience.

  • What should I bring? A water bottle and a snack are never a bad idea.

  • What should I wear? Casual or geek-casual clothing is great!

  • Will we be inside or outside? Inside.

  • Is there parking? There is limited street parking in the area should you decide to drive.

  • What is the cancellation policy? Space for our events is limited and we often have a waiting list of people that would like to attend. Once you register for the event we will hold a space just for you so we ask that if, for any reason, you cannot attend your scheduled shift, please make sure to cancel your registration so someone else can take your spot! You can cancel online or by reaching out to our volunteer coordination team.

  • Do you offer documentation? Upon request, we will gladly supply you with documentation for your volunteer hours for work or school purposes. We do NOT, however, provide court documentation. We do not believe that volunteering is a punishment and under no circumstances will we provide documentation for court-ordered community service.
