Boxing Legend Oscar De La Hoya & Singer Millie Corretjer Give White Memorial $250,000 to Fight COVID-19
30 March 2020 | Adventist Health White Memorial received $250,000 in funds to fight the coronavirus from boxing great Oscar De La Hoya and his wife, singer Millie Corretjer.
According to Round By Round Boxing, De La Hoya has donated significantly to the Adventist hospital in East Los Angeles in the past.
The donation will help cover unexpected COVID-19 expenses and will also be applied to pay for supplies needed by the hospital to care for its community during the outbreak.
“Adventist Health White Memorial is my hospital. They took incredible care of my mother when she was fighting breast cancer. During this crisis, White Memorial is incurring extraordinary expenses as they continue to provide quality care to our Boyle Heights Los Angeles community,” said the former boxer.
De La Hoya challenged his peers to donate to White Memorial or their local hospital to help them during the outbreak.
Adventist Health runs 20 hospitals and over 280 clinics on the West Coast and in Hawaii. It also operates home care and hospice agencies. The system is headquartered in Roseville, California, and is affiliated with the Adventist Church.
