Geek 2 Chic
was founded in 2010 and is produced by Microsoft in partnership with The Men's Store at Bloomingdale's. During the show, "geeks" from large companies, nonprofit organizations, tech startups, and public service wear the latest fashions as they raise funds for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship.

NFTE provides programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, recognize business opportunities, and plan for succesful futures.

This fall, Geek 2 Chic: DC takes the nation's capital by storm at Bloomingdale's Chevy Chase, with returning emcee Angie Goff of NBC Washington. All proceeds from ticket sales, plus 10% of Bloomingdale's sales the day of the event (save your duplicate receipts!), directly benefit NFTE.
