PILF Auction Draws Crowd

4/24/08--Boston College's Public Interest Law Foundation, held on April 23, was a major success.

4/24/08--Boston College's Public Interest Law Foundation held another successful PILF Auction. The auction took place downtown at the beautiful BC Club on April 23rd.

Easily PILF's biggest fundraiser and one of the most popular events of the year, the auction moved to its new location in the BC Club last year in an effort to make it more accessible to BC Law alumni.

The event was very well attended, according to second-year student and PILF member Amelia Corbett, who helped organize the auction. "The event was a huge success. There were a lot of students, alumni, and professors, and a great time was had by all," she said. "PILF would like to thank Mr. and Mrs. Jack Curtin, and Mr. and Mrs. Mike Puzo for participating in the evening, and Dean Garvey for his lovely words. A big thank you also to Dean Lord and Dean Wylie, and our wonderful auction committee."

This year's auction marked the 20th anniversary of the beloved Law School tradition, as well as the inauguration of a new one: the auction committee presented the first annual Mary Daly Curtin and John J. Curtin, Jr. Award for Public Interest to two honored members of the BC Law Public Interest Community, Michael and Christine Puzo.

The auction featured both live and silent auctions, as well as professors as guest auctioneers.
