13th Annual KJF Spring Auction


Preparations are underway for the 13th Annual KJF Spring Auction. The Auction is scheduled for Wednesday, April 14th.  The Auction is KJF’s largest fundraiser and one of the largest events at Kent.  For a small ticket price, attendees are treated to free food and drink and the opportunity to bid on numerous auction packages.  Auction packages include donations from area businesses, as well as Chicago-Kent faculty, administration, and staff. Packages include spa treatments, theatre and dinner packages, museum memberships, tickets to concerts and sporting events, dinner or drinks with your favorite professor, and much more.  Annually, the Spring Auction raises $12,000-$18,000, all of which help funds summer fellowships for those working in public interest jobs during the summer.
