On April 16, 2011, the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers (GAWL) held its 18th Annual Charity Auction benefitting the GAWL Foundation Scholarship at Art Space International in Atlanta, Georgia. The event funds 100 percent of the scholarships that the Foundation awards each year to deserving, public interest- minded, female law students in Georgia. Among the eight GAWL Foundation Scholarship finalists in the state, three attend Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School: Ashley Gholamhosseini, Audrey Holliday, and Danielle Long.
The Charity Auction included a live and a silent auction featuring art (paintings, photographs, sculpture), pottery, jewelry, vacations, and many other luxury items and baskets.
Several JMLS professors supported the GAWL Charity Auction — including Lee Adams, Kathe Burch, Browning Jefferies, Liza Karsai, Lance McMillian, and Dan Piar — who donated or purchased items to help GAWL raise scholarship funds. Also, GAWL was fortunate to have about 20 students, graduates, and friends of AJMLS volunteer to help with the auction.
These volunteers included: Andria Allen, George Boone, Matthew Dials, Kara Foskey, Ginger Fowler, Greg Gelpi, Jenn Gore, Ginny & Ansley Grigsby, Barbara Henderson, Megan Hodgkiss, Kareemah Lewis, Amber O’Connor, Susanne & Kurt Tarter, Sharee Tumbling, Mecca Waddell, Elizabeth Young, and Amy Zapatka.
