Thursday, April 2, 2015 from 6:00-10:00 p.m.
The 24th Annual Auction Gala will take place on Thursday, April 2, 2015 at the George Sherman Union’s Metcalf Ballroom.
The Auction Gala offers a variety of items including vacation rentals across the country, gift certificates to local restaurants around Boston, designer handbags and even cookware! The proceeds from the Auction Gala fund summer grants for BU law students pursuing public interest work.
To qualify for a grant, students must demonstrate a strong commitment to public service as well as secure an unpaid legal position in public service. The Auction Gala is entirely student-run and would not be possible without all the amazing volunteers, sponsors, alumni and fantastic BU faculty.
Some really cool items which will be at the auction and you will never find elsewhere are:
