The Washington and Lee University School of Law chapter of Phi Alpha Delta (PAD), an international service fraternity, has received the "Outstanding Community Service Law School Chapter Award" from the PAD Public Service Center for their 2006 charity auction. Students raised over $16,000 for the Yellow Brick Road Child Care Program in Lexington.
PAD sponsors several charitable events throughout the year at the School of Law, including a canned food drive and a blood drive, and planning has already begun for the 2007 charity auction, scheduled for October 25. During the auction, students bid on free dinners, trips, and other items donated by law school faculty and staff.
PAD is currently seeking nominations for local charitable organizations to benefit from the next auction. PAD prefers to donate funds to organizations with a special project or one-time need rather than supplementing an operating budget. Past recipients of auction proceeds have included the Lexington Free Clinic Dental Services and Rockbridge Area Hospice.
