Outwardly, there is nothing remarkable about Santa Marta Hospital and Clinic in East Los Angeles. A two-story, yellow-brick building on a side street off Brooklyn Avenue, it looks modern and well-kept, newer perhaps than its 13 years. One step inside the lobby and Santa Marta's takes on an ambiance all its own. There is a homey quality here and a warmth that stands out.

A $2-a-ticket raffle sponsored by Santa Marta Hospital in East Los Angeles--with comedian/actor Cheech Marin's classic '55 coral-and-ivory Chevy as the grand prize--raised $40,000 for an early breast cancer detection program. But a hospital spokeswoman added that the high visibility of the raffle stimulated two other grants: $25,000 from the California Community Foundation and $10,000 from the Adolph Coors Foundation. Mike Escamilla of La Habra won the car, featured in Marin's "Born in East L.A."
