The University of Denver Sturm College of Law’s Public Interest Law Group (PILG) is excited to announce that it will be hosting its 19th Annual Fundraising Auction on February 27th, 2014.

PILG is the law school’s student-run public interest organization, and the Annual Fundraising Auction is its largest effort to fund grants for students with a demonstrated commitment to the public good. Grants funded by the Auction benefit public organizations in the United States and abroad by allowing DU law students to channel their passions and skill sets toward important public interest legal work during their summers. Student recipients of the grant receive a $3,500 stipend from PILG, allowing them to volunteer full-time with these organizations. Previous organizations served by PILG grant recipients include the Denver Public Defenders Office, the Rocky Mountain Survivor Center, Alaska Legal Services Corporation, the European Roma Refugee Center, and International Commission of Missing Persons, among many others.

The 2014 Auction will include dinner, drinks, live music, a silent auction, and an exciting live auction. We will be auctioning off items such as a pair of tickets to the Great American Beer Fest, tickets to the Denver Zoo, a tea tasting for 10 at the House of Commons English Tea Room, and much more. Our goal this year is to raise $14,000, enough to cover four grants for the coming summer. We hope that you will be able to attend!

In order to provide the grants while covering the costs necessary to host a successful event, we are also seeking in-kind donations to the silent and live auctions and monetary donations to cover the costs of food and venue. Your support is invaluable to DU law students’ endeavors to contribute meaningfully to public interest organizations during the summer. By supporting PILG, you are ensuring the sustainability of the public interest program at DU Law, providing invaluable support to local students who will engage in important community-based work in the coming summer, and bolstering the efficacy of public interest in the legal community.
