Event Type

Join us on March 4, 2023, for the Public Interest Law Foundation’s Annual Auction: 30 Years of Transformation at the Grand Hyatt Seattle. This fundraiser and gala event celebrates two milestones — PILF’s 30th annual auction and the 50th anniversary of our law school! We are honored to have political commentator Angela Rye ’05 as our keynote speaker.

PILF is a student-led organization committed to increasing awareness of the rewards, challenges, opportunities, and needs in public interest law. PILF has raised funds for summer grants to support law students working in unpaid legal internships with organizations serving marginalized communities. The annual PILF Auction is our main source of funding for these grants, raising more than $200,000 in 2022 – enough for 24 grants. Your generosity is an important part of our success!

Ticket sales for the auction are open. An online silent auction opens on February 24 leading up to the live auction on March 4. With the purchase of a table or ticket, you and your guests will be emailed and texted your personal bidding links when the online silent auction starts. Can’t make the event? You can still participate in the silent auction without needing to purchase a ticket.
