For nearly a century, White Memorial hospital and medical center in Boyle Heights has been on a mission to provide quality care in a eastside community where health care resources have lagged and in some cases been completely missing, and they have been able to accomplish this goal by building partnerships with others willing to generously contribute to their mission.

On Sunday, the White Memorial Medical Center Charitable Foundation raised over $560,000—a record amount—during their annual awards gala. The event also marked the beginning of White Memorial Medical Center’s 2013 Centennial Celebration. Proceeds from the event will benefit a variety of services at the hospital and medical center located in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Boyle Heights.

“White Memorial Medical Center has a fierce determination to face obstacles, a love for serving its community and a faith in the divine role in healing and in advancing the mission of the hospital,” said White Memorial Medical Center President and CEO Beth Zachary in a written statement. “I’m confident that the shoulders we stand on are strong enough to take us through whatever the future holds — as long as we remain true to our mission and values,” she said.
