Berkeley Law Foundation Holds Annual Auction

The Berkeley Law Foundation (BLF) held its 10th Annual Auction Extravaganza on Friday, November 4. This year's auction, "Boalt in the Blues," celebrated diversity in the midst of the 1920s—the height of the jazz age, the beginning of the blues—with entertainment, dancing, food and a cash bar. The silent and live auctions allowed partygoers to bid on items donated by students, faculty members and businesses in the Boalt and Berkeley communities. Highlights included weekend getaways to Lake Tahoe and beyond, a BarBri course, Professor Steve Bundy as a DJ for your party, moonlight champagne tasting, and wine and cheese with the Legal Research and Writing professors. Proceeds from the auction support the foundation's Phoenix Fellowships, which encourage students of color to attend Boalt Hall and pursue public interest careers. 11/7/2005
