Tulane Law School's very ambitious good-deed-doers, the Public Interest Law Foundation, has the announcement below (and those over 30 will appreciate the flip-flop notice). I recommend a weekend trip to New Orleans for: (1) our best weather of the year, (2) the omnipresent music gearing up for Jazzfest (its April/May schedule discussed and linked at Minor Wisdom blog), (3) affordable fine restaurants (many of which donated full course meals as silent auction items), and (4) interesting art and museums (even some art on sale at the auction, plus view an authentic Katrina-themed Blue Dog on display in our lobby). The live auction component is entertaining, as emceed by our own profs Jancy Hoeffel and Gabe Feldman. What about it, Jeff, are you and Alene free that weekend for a return trip? And bring Arielle and Simon down too? Here is the notice:
The Tulane Public Interest Law Foundation is proud to announce its annual PILF Auction
Saturday, March 7, 2009, Weinmann Hall
Silent Auction: 6:45 pm – 8:00 pm; Live Auction: 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm
The theme for this year’s event is a classic Black and White Gala, so come out in your best black and white attire and get ready to do some bidding! Open to Tulane Law School students, faculty and staff... Cocktail attire recommended (no jeans or flip-flips, please). As always, all the proceeds from the 2009 PILF Auction will go towards PILF’s prestigious summer grant program, which provides law students with a chance to take public interest jobs during the summer.
Although their notice states that the event is open to those in the Tulane community, the co-chair Ashley Luick tells me they will be happy to include attorneys and guests who are visiting Nola or otherwise interested in attending, though she requests that for counting reasons they contact her at this email address if interested. She can also discuss directions, auction procedures, and available items.
