Public Interest Law Project Annual Fundraiser Set for Feb. 8

The Public Interest Law Project’s largest fundraiser is its annual auction, supporting the Summer Stipend Program and Loan Repayment Assistance Program at Lewis & Clark Law School.

The 23rd annual PILP auction will be Friday, Feb. 8, 2013 at the Multnomah Athletic Club. This year the event takes the theme, “An Evening in Paris.”

The gala event brings together the Portland legal community, Lewis & Clark law students and faculty and public interest law supporters to celebrate the work of PILP stipend recipients and volunteers throughout the year — and, most importantly, to raise money to bridge the justice gap between those who can afford legal help and those who need it. The auction raises funds to provide stipends and loan assistance to students and alumni who work for the public interest.

The event starts at 5:30 p.m.
