The Nebraska Law Women's Law Caucus held its annual charity auction on March 4, recently renamed in honor of Assistant Dean of Diversity and Inclusion Anna Williams Shavers. The auction brought in $13,214 benefiting Voices of Hope, the Friendship Home, the Nebraska Public Interest Law Fund, and the Anna Shavers Scholarship Fund. 

The event featured speakers Angie Hilsabeck, Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Friendship Home; Natalie Roberts-Day, Executive Director at Voices of Hope; Kala Mueller, Director of Public Interest Programs at the College of Law; and 3L Miranda Cannon, Women's Law Caucus President. Law student Steffany Lien, the University of Nebraska Feature Twirler, performed a baton routine in between speakers. 

A silent auction offered goods from local businesses, while a live auction featured items and experiences from faculty members and firms. Prizes included brunch with Assistant Dean for Student Development Molly Brummond, a round of golf with Professor James Tierney and a grill out with the law library staff. Nic Zito, brother of 2L Izzy Zito (Women's Law Caucus 2L Treasurer), served as the auctioneer.
