On Thursday, March 8, 2012 The Association of Women Law Students hosted the 14th Annual Charity Auction and Ball at the Armory Ballroom in Downtown Macon. They raised over $13,000 to benefit two local charities. In the past three years they have raised over $40,000 to support local charities.
The event featured live music from Dean Gary Simson and faculty band featuring Sarah Gerwig-Moore and Richard Creswell. Items offered in the live auction, by auctioneer and Professor Chris Wells, included trips to North Carolina and Vermont, singing telegrams, home cooked meals provided by professors, dinner at local restaurants, the opportunity to reserve the Lawyer’s Reading Room for 10 days during finals and much more. The silent auction included over 30 gift certificates.
