Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Los Angeles Free Clinic provides a full range of high quality free medical, dental and social services to the homeless, the uninsured, the working poor, and high-risk youth. The Clinic provides over 78,000 patient visits annually that include a wide range of health services for men, women and children. Thousands utilize the Clinic as a medical home as they have nowhere else to turn for health and human services.

The Extravaganza for the Senses is one of The Los Angeles Free Clinic's largest annual fundraisers. The event generated more than $200,000 last year for the Clinic's vital services. The Clinic believes that health care is a right, not a privilege.
