Salerni Collegium celebrates 50 years of supporting Keck School of Medicine

The Salerni Collegium, an organization of Keck School alumni and others who provide financial support to the medical school, marks its 50th anniversary this year.

To celebrate, the Salerni Collegium, in conjunction with the Keck School of Medicine and The Medical Faculty Wives and Friends, will host the Annual Scholarship Dinner on March 8 at The Jonathan Club in downtown Los Angeles.

Photos from the past 50 years will be displayed on a silent screen during the cocktail hour beginning at 6 p.m. The evening’s program will feature scholarship awards to outstanding students. In addition, the Medical Faculty Wives and Friends will honor Doris Segall, and Salerni will honor George B. Stoneman for their hard work and loyal service.

Festivities will include a live auction with opportunities for travel, USC football field passes, Hollywood Bowl seats and other treasures. The Trojan Marching Band will perform during dessert, and guests also will enjoy dancing to the live music of Tom Thumb and The Hitchhikers.

For ticket information, call (323) 442-3292. All proceeds are split between the Salerni Collegium and Medical Faculty Wives and Friends and will go toward scholarships for medical students.
