Geek 2 Chic was founded in 2010 and it is produced by Microsoft in partnership with Bloomingdale's. At these events, "geeks" from diverse walks of life wear the latest fashions as they strut the catwalk to raise funds for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). NFTE is an organization that was founded in 1987 that provides programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, recognize business opportunities, and plan for successful futures.
This fall season, Geek 2 Chic will take place in Chicago and Washington, DC. Tickets are limited. VIP tickets include premiere seating along the catwalk and entry to the exclusive after-party. All proceeds from General Admission and VIP tickets, plus 10% of Bloomingdale's Men's sales the evening of the event, benefit NFTE.
