Auction to benefit public interest fellowships for Dickinson Law students

February 22, 2019

CARLISLE, Pa. — Dickinson Law's Public Interest Law Fund (PILF) will host its annual auction on Thursday, March 28, from 7 to 10 p.m. at Comfort Suites Downtown Carlisle, 10 S. Hanover St., Carlisle. The annual auction serves as PILF’s main fundraising event.

All proceeds will support the Degenstein Foundation Fellowship Program for Public Interest Law and the Cherie M. Millage Summer Fellowship Program to help fund public interest fellowships for Dickinson Law students.

Alumni and friends are invited to attend. The event will feature live and silent auctions; food, cocktails and live entertainment; and the opportunity to mingle with Dickinson Law faculty, staff and students and learn more about PILF’s important work. Tickets will be available for $15 at the door and can also be purchased online.

A non-profit, student-run organization, PILF encourages students to work for non-profit legal organizations or government agencies. Throughout the year, PILF hosts several events to raise money in support of summer fellowships, with the annual auction serving as its primary fundraiser. Last year, PILF funded four fellowships for deserving students and hopes to increase available aid to enable more students to support the needs of local, national and global communities.
