WLC Increases Goal for 19th Annual Silent Auction

WLC Silent Auction BannerEach 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.

The YWCA is the leading organization in Missoula for moving women and families out of crisis situations and empowering them to achieve lasting independence. Its Pathways Program offers a safe shelter, crisis counseling, and support for survivors of domestic and sexual violence, including a 24-hour crisis hotline.

More than 300 members of the campus, legal, and greater Missoula communities attend the annual silent auction in support of both groups and their missions to advocate for victims of domestic violence.

The WLC will hold its 19th Annual Silent Auction on Friday March 4, 2016 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Missoula Children’s Theater.

Admission is free to the event, with appetizers, refreshments, and live music all included. Attendees are encouraged to bid on silent auction items such as weekend getaways, handmade items, homemade goods, artwork, gift certificates, outdoor adventures, gift baskets, and much more.
