Tonkon Torp was a Secret Garden sponsor at the February 17 Lewis & Clark Law School 27th Annual Public Interest Law Project (PILP) Auction. Alex Tinker led Tonkon's involvement with the auction. He attended the event along with his fellow Lewis & Clark alums Jeanette Schuster, Stephanie Grant, and Megan Reuther, as well as additional guests. The PILP Auction raises funds to support Lewis & Clark's Summer Stipend Program and Loan Repayment Assistance Program. Last year, PILP raised enough funds to grant awards to 13 students who worked for public interest organizations in Oregon and across the country.
