In consideration of approval to volunteer at the May 11th, 2019 Philadelphia Federal Credit Union Kensington Derby & Arts Festival, hereinafter called the “Festival,” organized by the New Kensington Community Development Corporation (NKCDC) and the East Kensington Neighborhood Association (EKNA), hereinafter called the “Organizers”, and intending to be legally bound, I hereby agree as follows:
To waive any and all claims that I have or may have in the future against the Organizers or any of its insurers, directors, officers, contractors, consultants, agents and representatives (each a “Released Party” and collectively the “Released Parties”);
To release the Released Parties from any and all liability for any loss, damage, injury or expense (including, without limitation, attorneys’ fees) that I may suffer, or that my next of kin may suffer, as a result of my participation as a Festival volunteer, due to any cause whatsoever, including negligence, breach of contract or breach of any statutory or other duty of care;
This Waiver and Release shall be effective and binding upon my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrators, assigns and representatives in the event of my death or incapacity;
In signing this Waiver and Release, I am not relying upon any oral or written representations or statements made by any Released Party other than what is set forth in this Agreement;
I freely accept and fully assume all risks, dangers and hazards and the possibility of personal injury, death, property damage or loss, resulting from my participation as a Festival volunteer;
I expressly agree that this Waiver and Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and that this Waiver and Release will be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to conflicts of laws principles; and
I agree that in the event that any clause or provision of this Waiver and Release is held to be invalid by any court of competent jurisdiction, the invalidity of such clause or provision will not otherwise affect the remaining provisions of this Waiver and Release, which will continue to be enforceable.
When registering as a Festival volunteer, I affirm that I have read and understand this Agreement, and that by agreeing to these terms, I am waiving certain legal rights which I or my heirs, next of kin, executors, administrator and assigns may have against the Released Parties.
