Each year APIL hosts two auction events- the Silent Auction at the School of Law Dinner and the Annual APIL Auction held for students, faculty, and administration in Pepperdine’s atrium. The auction is APIL’s most profitable fundraising activity, and a good opportunity for grant applicants to volunteer their time. Last year’s Silent Auction at the School of Law Dinner was held on March 5, 2011. Items including vacation destinations, vineyard tours, and theatre tickets, were bided upon raising over $8,000 in support of the grants.
The 2012 Annual Law School Dinner Auction will be held on February 18, 2012 at the Beverly Wilshire. The auction is a student-organized event with all proceeds going to deserving students in the form of APIL Summer Fellowships. Local business are invited to make donations which will be auctioned off to Pepperdine Alumni, Pepperdine faculty and administration, students and their families, and the Los Angeles community at large.
