Luxury seats, coveted experiences and intimate gatherings with influential and important people are some of the big-ticket items up for bid at the NYU School of Law's 17th annual Public Service Auction on Feburary 24. Last year’s sales raised almost $100,000 for public interest summer funding grants for 1Ls and 2Ls to work at organizations around the globe. This year, the goal is $150,000.
The silent auction, which runs from 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. in Greenberg Lounge, features hundreds of items and services donated by alumni, faculty, students, and local businesses.
The live auction in Tishman Auditorium includes a chance to take on Dean Revesz in a Wii Tennis match, as well as these other prizes:
