San Diego (September 11, 2012) - The USD Women’s Law Caucus will be hosting its annual Faculty Auction on February 14, 2013, to raise money for the Loan Repayment Assistance Program (LRAP) and various charities assisting women in the San Diego area.
Last year's auction raised over $7,200 for charity. This year, the Women's Law Caucus hopes to increase that number with additional donations from faculty and alumni. There are two ways to contribute to the Auction. The first is by donating an outing with students to the live auction-this is by far the most popular with students. In the past, activities have included poker games, lunches and even rounds of golf. Outings can be individualized by specifying when, where and how many students can participate.
An alternative to donating to the live auction is contributing a more tangible item to the silent auction. Examples of past donations are gift cards, gift baskets, study aids, and USD apparel. Any alumni interested in participating should email Jacqueline A. Kallberg.
