EQUALUX - TASTE of GSBA 2019 will take place on November 23rd at the Seattle Westin Hotel in downtown Seattle.

GSBA’s annual fundraising dinner and auction that brings together the Puget Sound's LGBTQ & Allied community for an evening to raise money for the education of LGBTQ and Allied Students.   

Volunteering is an excellent way to attend the event at no cost and with over 1,000 people attending this year, we have volunteer opportunities for everyone.  

Code of Conduct

As a volunteer at the event, you are representing GSBA and we ask that you do so in a responsible and respectful manner.  You are welcome to participate in the silent auction, sample the food from the caterers and enjoy the entertainment as long as it does not interfere with your assigned responsibilities. Consumption of alcoholic beverages or other substances that affect your cognition is not allowed by volunteers during your work shift. 


Certain volunteer groups are required to attend an orientation and training on November 16th. Other groups will receive training the day of the event, please check in with your team lead to find our when your required training will occur. It is important to attend this orientation as you will be briefed on multiple aspects of the event including times and locations of events as well as basic logistical questions such as the location of bathrooms.  It is important that our volunteers be able to provide excellent customer service to the event's guests, staff and each other. Our ultimate goal is to have a successful event and we accomplish that by supporting each other and being part of the team. 


Volunteer meals will be provided in two separate seating's, your volunteer lead will let you know when and where.
