SARATOGA SPRINGS — Lisa Best, family and friends presented a gift of $13,500 to the Saratoga Regional YMCA in memory of their loving husband, father, and friend, Bob Best.

In 2018, after Bob’s sudden passing, family and friends created the Bob Best Memorial Scholarship Fund to honor Bob. Bob and Lisa Best and family were long-time members of the YMCA. Through their experience, they saw firsthand the great benefits Y membership and programs provides a family. Lisa found through her role as a teacher that at-risk students who were given financial assistance to the Y benefited from the positive influence the Y had on them through their programs. 

In total, the fund has provided the Y with $29,500. Funds are available to support sending kids to camp as well as covering membership costs. In addition, $1,000 was dedicated to the Saratoga Builder’s Association to benefit a local student entering the building trades. 

Lisa Best and their children want to thank friends, family and local businesses for their continued love and generous support to the Bob Best Memorial Fund.
