|EJF Auction Raises $47,000
The Equal Justice Foundation (EJF) raised nearly
$47,000 at its auction last February. Attendees bid on items
such as lunch for two with Governor Rendell, naming rights to
a character in Lisa Scottoline’s next book, a punch ballot signed
by Bush v. Gore lawyers, and private rowing lessons on the
Schuylkill River. Robert Toll, L’66 served as auctioneer.
The EJF auction supports the summer Public Interest program,
which provides grants to students for internships at
nonprofit organizations. This past year, 13 students received full
and partial grants. Also this year, EJF awarded its first Summer
Jackson-Healy Award in recognition of a graduating student’s
commitment to public interest work. Mani Golzari, L’07
received the $5,000 award.
