2017 PILA Auction on Feb. 25; Tickets on Sale
Get ready to don your evening’s best and strut the red carpet right into the 25th Annual Public Interest Law Association Auction on Saturday, Feb. 25. This year’s auction theme, “A Night at the Lawscars,” celebrates the real stars: all of you!
Students, faculty, and alumni are invited to mix, mingle, and partake in friendly bidding wars for hot-ticket items like Escape the Room with Associate Dean Jessica Gabel Cino and dinner at Professor Neil Kinkopf’s home. Guests will even enjoy an exciting live auction presented by our esteemed auctioneer, Professor Roy Sobelson.
Funds raised from the auction will provide scholarships for students working unpaid summer internships at public interest organizations. Last year, our guests helped PILA raise more than $20,000 and awarded six full-time and part-time fellowships to students working at various public interest organizations, including the Walton County District Attorney’s Office, the DeKalb County Public Defenders office, and the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights.
We hope this year’s auction will be just as successful. The auction will take place at 7 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 25, at the Twelve Hotel in Atlantic Station. Don’t wait to purchase your tickets because this is one star-studded event you will not want to miss!
