To combat a sharp decline in federal funding for legal aid programs, the Memphis legal community is hoping to raise money via an online silent auction for Memphis Area Legal Services (MALS). Alpha Reporting Corp. is leading the effort to raise money for and awareness of what MALS does for the community. The auction will run for two weeks, from June 4 to June 18. Donors are asked to contribute anything of value, with suggested items including auto services, oil paintings, theater tickets and pottery. Additional auctions are planned for July and August.
