17th annual Public Interest Auction raises record $31,000
The 17th annual Public Interest Auction held on Nov. 13 by the SU College of Law‘s Syracuse Public Interest Network was a smashing success. The silent and live auctions set records by raising about $31,000.
An estimated 500 law students, faculty, staff, family, friends and members of the community gathered at the Hotel Syracuse to bid on more than 400 donated items ranging from dinners/experiences with professors to works of art, sports memorabilia, tickets to performances in New York City and Syracuse, and much more. Proceeds from the auction benefit law students at the College of Law Public Interest Network, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, whose mission is to ensure that law students have the opportunity to work in public interest positions in the community and throughout the nation.
