Auction to benefit domestic-violence victims

February 5, 2009

The Indiana University School of Law - Indianapolis' Women's Caucus is hosting its annual auction Feb. 12 to raise funds for the Protective Order Pro Bono Project. Proceeds from the auction will go to the project, which provides free legal advice for low-income victims of domestic abuse.

Some of the auction items this year include works of art, jewelry, gift certificates and tickets for Indianapolis businesses and entertainment venues, dinners with professors and Indianapolis attorneys and judges, and a seven-night stay at a beach-front condo in Maui, Hawaii.

Auction chairperson Amelia Deibert said last year the auction raised more than $8,000 for the Coburn Place Safe Haven.

Auction paddles are $3 in advance and $5 at the door; to buy paddles in advance, e-mail the Women's Caucus at wmscaucs@iupui.edu. The auction is from 7 to 9 p.m. in Inlow Hall at the law school, and Dean Gary Roberts and Kerry Hyatt Blomquist of the Indiana Coalition Against Domestic Violence will be the auctioneers.
