A Kansas University law student group handed over a $4,000 donation to the Willow Domestic Violence Center in Lawrence on Monday after a fundraiser last month.

The KU Women in Law group collected the funds at its annual Pub Night fundraiser in April, nearly doubling the amount raised in 2012, said Victoria Whitehead, the group’s president. She said it was likely the most the event had ever raised.

The group presented a $4,000 check to the Willow center Monday afternoon. “It’s just amazing,” said Joan Schultz, executive director of the Willow center.

More than 50 businesses donated items for auction at the April event, Whitehead said, led by a basketball signed by the KU men’s basketball team.
