On Saturday, April 4, 2009, the Office of Alumni Relations will host an alumni reception prior to this year’s WUPILP auction at Mission Mill Museum in Salem.
The Willamette University Public Interest Law Projectâ€™s main fundraiser is the “Bid for Justice”, an auction and wine tasting event pivotal in allowing Willamette law students to take unpaid public interest positions over the summer. At last year’s event, WUPILP raised over $25,000. As a result, seven summer fellowships were awarded to students working at Legal Aid Services of Oregon, Metropolitan Public Defender, and similar organizations.
Not only is it a great cause, there are great items up for bidding! Trips to Mexico, tickets to professional sporting events, art, wine and more!
We hope you will join us for one or both of these great events, which will kick off with the reception at 5 p.m. in the Dye House. Do you have an item you would like to donate to the auction? Please contact Jonathan Strauhal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Watch your mail for invitations – they will be coming your way soon.
