USC President Steven B. Sample and his wife, Kathryn Sample, will be the guests of honor at the annual Town and Gown benefit luncheon Tuesday, March 1, at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“What they have done for the university to bring it to world prominence is almost beyond anyone’s ability to put into words,” said Judith Pohlmann, co-chair of the event. “I’m so proud of the university, and it’s because of President and Mrs. Sample.”
The theme of the annual benefit, which raises scholarship funds for USC graduate and undergraduate students, is “Bringing Back the Little Black Dress.” A presentation of vintage fashions will anchor the luncheon.
