2018 EQUALUX Volunteers

EQUALUX: TASTE of GSBA 2018 Volunteers

EQUALUX is about a community coming together for its own. It also happens to be the best gala in the state! Volunteer with us for Seattle's largest LGBTQ fundraiser for an evening of empowerment, community, and support. 

EQUALUX: TASTE of GSBA will take place on Saturday, November 17 at the Westin Seattle Hotel. 

Nearly 1,200 people will gather for one of the most unique and inspiring events our community has to offer. TASTE of GSBA is biggest and most successful fundraiser for the GSBA Scholarship Fund and 100% of the proceeds supports scholarships for LGBTQ and allied students.  

In order to make this event happen we need 170+ volunteers. We need your help to make this event magical!

All volunteers will be warmly welcomed, trained, fed, and have a grand evening.
