UNC School of Law's Carolina Public Interest Law Organization (C-PILO) will host its annual Auction and Benefit at Top of the Hill on Thursday, Jan. 31, from 7 until 11 p.m. All of the proceeds from the event go directly to fund UNC School of Law students accepting full-time, unpaid public interest law positions for the summer. In the past, the event has raised nearly $20,000 to help fund 18 students' public-interest internships.

Carolina Law students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to attend this popular event, which also supports local small businesses that donated many of the auction items. UNC sports memorabilia, vacation homes, shopping parties, wine tastings, art, ski passes and more than a hundred other items and services will be up for auction. The benefit will feature silent and live auctions, comedians, live music and heavy hors d'oeuvres, catered by Top of the Hill. Tickets cost $12 in advance or $15 at the door and cover admission and the cost of food.

For more information about the event, contact C-PILO President, Zachary Kohn at or 301.385.2560.
