Save the Date - 16th Annual Goods & Services Auction - March 24, 2010

Touro Law Center’s 16th Annual Goods & Services Auction will be held this year on Wednesday, March 24, 2010 from 6-8 p.m. at the Law Center in Central Islip, New York.

All proceeds from the auction benefit the Touro Summer Public Interest Law Fellowship Program, which fund summer stipends for students to work in public interest law firms or non-profit organizations. These students defend the victims of domestic violence, guard the legal interests of children and help advocacy groups with a broad spectrum of poverty and civil rights issues.

How can I help? You can donate an item to be included in the auction. Items for donation might include gift certificates, artwork, theater tickets, sporting tickets, travel packages, wine, electronics, jewelry or something even more creative. You may also consider a $1,000 Event Sponsorship which includes recognition at the event and in the auction brochure, as well as ten tickets to the auction.

How Does the Auction Work? Donations of artwork, theater tickets, sporting tickets, travel packages, wine, restaurant gift certificates and many other items are sold in both silent and live bidding. The auction program will also recognize one Attorney of the Year from each of the top law firms on Long Island who best exemplifies public interest legal work performed in the areas of poverty law, civil rights law or public rights law, including representing charitable organizations.

Last year, thanks to our contributors, we raised more than $40,000 for Public Interest Law Fellowships. Your support is critical to our continued success.
