Release of Liability and Waiver of Claims
In consideration of participating in the Lit Gala, I agree to waive, release, and discharge Lit Gala, its Partners, its Sponsors, facility owners, and their respective directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, and volunteers from any and all liability for any claims, suits, demands, actions, damages, losses, judgments, and costs (including legal fees) (hereafter referred to in these Terms and Conditions as “Claims”), which I have or may have in the future that might arise out of, or relate to my participation in the Lit Gala, including but not limited to traveling to and/or from the Lit Gala, notwithstanding that the same may have been contributed to or occasioned by the negligence of Lit Gala or any of the persons or entities listed herein.
I agree to indemnify and hold harmless the Lit Gala and the persons and entities listed in the preceding paragraph from any and all damages of any kind as a result of any Claims that might arise out of or relate to my participation in any activities involved in the Lit Gala, including but not limited to traveling to and/or from the Lit Gala, notwithstanding that the same may have been contributed to or occasioned by the negligence of Lit Gala or any of the persons or entities listed herein.
