Kodak Theater to host event

The Southern California Multiple Sclerosis Society will hold its annual Dinner of Champions on Friday at the Kodak Theater at Hollywood & Highland — the first time ever at that venue.

The event will feature a “Concert at the Kodak,” with performances by John Williams and the cast of the film “Rent.”

Richard M. Cohen will receive the Dorothy Corwin Spirit of Life Award and Madeleine and Tom Sherak will be honored.

A reception will be held from 6 to 7:30 p.m., followed by the concert.
