Beautiful Sunsets, a Gorgeous House and a Great Cause – The Marla J. Gold Scholarship for public health students

Suzanne and Norman Cohn hosted a reception and dinner at their Center
City penthouse apartment for Drexel University’s School of Public Health
on Tuesday, April 2nd.

 

 The event established the Marla J. Gold
Scholarship
for public health
students in honor of Dean Gold, who is stepping down after more than a
decade of leading the School, the only accredited school of public
health in the region and one of only two in Pennsylvania.

guests at the reception were (from left to right)

 You may not recognize the name Norman Cohn, but you probably own
something he has promoted. According to a June 2012 Wall Street Journal
article “chairman of the Advertising Specialty Institute—a for-profit trade group
whose members concern themselves with all manner of promotional
knickknacks.”
Home, he admits…is mainly off-limits to swag.
His wife is a “minimalist,” he says, who comes into his office every
once in a while and helps clean it out. (source)
