Carolina Public Interest Law Organization's annual Auction & Benefit at Top of the Hill last year, on January 21, 2016 was a great success! Thanks to all of our generous bidders we were able to raise around $13,000. All of the proceeds from the event go directly to fund UNC law students accepting full-time, unpaid public interest law positions for the summer. The CPILO board would like to thank Professor Myers for his annual outstanding job as our auctioneer, and his continued participation each year; all of our volunteers for helping to make the night run smoothly; all of the students who solicited and businesses and individuals who made donations; and all of the students, professors, and alumni who plan to come out to celebrate public interest and bid on our items. It will truly be a fun night, and we can't wait to see you all there!
The auction will feature a live and silent auction, giving students a chance to bid on unique experiences with their professors: from shooting range trips, dinner at a professor's home, to live plays, and much more! The event also aims to support local small businesses which graciously donated many of the auction items. UNC sports memorabilia, vacation homes, shopping parties, wine tastings, art, ski passes and more items and services are up for auction. Carolina Law's very own Dean Myers will, once again, be the auctioneer and Will Graebe will be our emcee. There will also be a cash bar and heavy hors d’oeuvres catered by Top of the Hill. Tickets cost $13 in advance or $15 at the door, and cover admission and the cost of food.
