Friday, March 28, 2014, 6:00-10:00 p.m.
Villanova University School of Law
The Walter Lucas Public Interest Fellowship Program (PIFP) of Villanova University School of Law will host the Pepper Hamilton LLP 2014 Public Interest Auction on Friday, March 28, 2014 at Villanova Law School. The silent auction will begin at 6:00 p.m., and the live auction will begin at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free and all are welcome.
This year marks the 17th anniversary of the event, PIFP’s largest and most successful fundraiser, and PIFP is most grateful to Pepper Hamilton LLP for serving as the auction’s first official sponsor.
A student-led organization, PIFP is dedicated to supporting student legal work in the public interest sector. All auction proceeds will go toward providing $4,500 fellowships to students who commit their summers to performing public service legal work. PIFP also awards one $12,000 fellowship to a recent graduate who has committed to working full-time for a public service organization or governmental agency.
Comprised of both silent and live auctions, the event in recent years has featured 250 to 300 items donated by individuals and businesses throughout Greater Philadelphia and across the country including: lunch and golf foursomes with distinguished Villanova Law alumni, vacation stays, tickets to cultural and sporting events and much more.
Please join PIFP in helping public interest organizations deliver volunteer legal services to those in need throughout the Greater Philadelphia region and beyond. Click here to learn how you can be part of this entertaining evening and help support summer fellows.
