March 7 Public Interest Auction – tickets go on sale Monday

It’s that time of year again! Your Student Bar Association has been planning tirelessly to make this year’s Public Interest Auction a memorable and beneficial night for students, faculty, and local attorneys. This year’s auction will feature over 50 items in both a live and silent auction, a live auctioneer, light hors d’oeuvres, and a cash bar.

Student and faculty tickets are $10 per attendee and will be available in the Student Lounge starting Monday Feb. 23 through Friday Mar. 6 and at the door. Cash, check, and credit cards are accepted.

The Auction will be held on Saturday March 7 from 6-9pm at the FirstMerit Club Level on the 5th Floor of the InfoCision Stadium press tower.

As a reminder, any student who wishes to receive distributions from Public Interest Stipend MUST attend the Auction. If you want to be considered, you must attend. Please direct any questions to Dan Boyer at djb118@zips.uakron.edu or ask your SBA Class Representatives.
