PILF Auction Raises Record-Breaking Total

March 08, 2010

This year's Sixth Annual USF Public Interest Law Foundation Gala Auction and Award Ceremony raised enough money to provide 27 summer grants for public interest internships in 2010.

The grants are valued at $4,000 each and will provide students the opportunity to work at nonprofit organizations and public interest agencies without financial hardship.

With the help of a silent and live auction, sponsor donations, miscellaneous cash donations, and the Donate-a-Day program, the Public Interest Law Foundation (PILF) raised approximately $56,400. The money raised at the auction will be matched by the USF School of Law dean's office to fund the internships. This year marks the greatest amount of money raised by the foundation.

The event was attended by approximately 350 guests, including honored speaker California Supreme Court Justice Carlos R. Moreno, who received the Public Interest Excellence Award.

Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Erin Dolly said the program was "meaningful and inspiring" and the amount of money raised "in light of these economic times is amazing."PILF sponsored 26 grants in the summer of 2009 and 25 grants in the summer of 2008.
