Sabans aid Los Angeles Free Clinic

'Summer' reunites duo; ASCAP honors Q

Univision topper Haim Saban and wife Cheryl paid back the Los Angeles Free Clinic in spades Monday, making a $10 million gift to what will now be known as the Saban Free Clinic. The name was announced during an afternoon reception attended by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger.

A major impetus behind the donation was the treatment Cheryl Saban received from the clinic 25 years ago while a divorced, working mother without health insurance.

“It’s humiliating to go begging for health care,” she said. “And the Free Clinic treated me with dignity and gave me excellent care.”
