ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR CURRENT WEEK (11/2/98) 

Thanks to everyone who helped out with the bakesale last week! 

KJF will hold a general meeting on Tuesday, November 3 at noon in Room 170.  The letter drive deadline is approaching, and if you belong to an Auction Committee and have received your materials, keep your committee chair updated as to what is going on with your list (questions, problems, or any materials you need). 
 
TOILETRIES DRIVE STARTS MONDAY 11/2.  Drop off your items in the box near the security desk on the first floor.   Please donate items such as:  soap, shampoo, razors, toilet paper, lotions, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc.  These are much-needed items that people often forget to donate.   We will take the donated items to local women's shelters.  Remember that any items at all that you are able to donate will be very appreciated by the shelters and the women! 

KJF will be having a T-SHIRT SALE on November 17th, 18th, and 19th.  The design will be posted on the KJF board on the concourse.  If you would like to help sit at the table to sell the shirts, please e-mail Adam Weber (aweber). 
 

We still need people to sign up for Auction committees.  All you need to do is pick a committee that you are interested in (restaurants, bars, hotels, etc.).  We will then give you a form letter and you simply fill in the names of places we are going to solicit, add a few forms, and give the letters back to us to mail out.  Your help would be greatly appreciated.  If you are interested in joining a committee or know someone who can donate something to the Auction, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair Heather Fritsch (hfritsch), or come to one of these meetings. 

 
WHAT IS KJF? 

The Kent Justice Foundation (KJF) is a student organization committed to providing Chicago-Kent College of Law students with the opportunity to work in the public interest sector.  KJF has the sole mission of establishing summer fellowships for students who work in public interest law organizations.  Through annual fundraising events, KJF hopes to provide public interest organizations with much needed assistance, while offering the students invaluable legal training through their summer fellowships.  KJF also sponsors a public service project each semester.

AUCTION  

This year's KJF Auction is scheduled for Wednesday March 24, 1999 (2 days before Spring Break). 

The KJF Auction is an annual event held each spring in which items such as weekend stays at hotels, dinners with professors, tickets to sporting events, and even airline tickets which are donated from area establishements are auctioned off to raise money for fellowships for students that work at public interest organizations over the summer.  Kent students, alumni, faculty, and friends are all invited for a good time.  In addition to the Auction, which was sponsored by Sam Adams, a wide variety of food, beer, and wine are served.  Last year's auction was a great success- hundreds of people attended and over $16,000 was raised for fellowship money.  Recent recipients of fellowhips have worked for organizations such as Cook County's Public Guardian, Cook County State's Attorney, AIDS Legal Council, Legal Assistance Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency.  Generally, these recipients are students who have actively participated in KJF events.  If you are interested in helping out with the Auction, or other aspect of KJF, please e-mail Auction Co-Chair Heather Fritsch (hfritsch).
