On Friday, October 22nd, Murphy Inn held their Inaugural Date Auction for Autism where date with law students were auctioned off for donations. The Inn solicited community restaurants and businesses for donations they could make for prizes that would accompany the dates and winning bids were awarded with a bottle of wine and a gift card to a local establishment.
Murphy Inn was also able to get a band (Carry the Zero) to donate their services for the event. In the end, they raised $2,068 for Touchpoint Autism Services based in Saint Louis, Missouri. Double their expected goal!!!
This will be an annual event from here on out and it is expected to be even bigger next year. The entire student body raved about it.
