WLC Increases Goal for 19th Annual Silent Auction

Each spring, the Women’s Law Caucus (WLC) student group at the School of Law holds its annual silent auction to benefit the Missoula YWCA Pathways Domestic Violence Program. In 2015, the WLC Silent Auction raised nearly $10,000 for the Pathways Program. Committed to engaging in issues affecting women, families, and the law, and with even greater ambitions for 2016, the WLC hopes to raise $11,000 during its 19th Annual Silent Auction on Friday March 4, 2016 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Missoula Children's Theater.
