Saratoga Springs Lions Club Makes Donation To Backstretch Employees Service Team (B.E.S.T.)

September 4, 2012 (Saratoga Springs, NY) – Members of the Saratoga Springs Lions Club recently presented the Backstretch Employees Service Team (B.E.S.T.) with a donation directed to help provide the backstretch workers at Saratoga Race Course with vision and diabetes screening.

The Saratoga Springs Lion’s Club has worked closely with B.E.S.T. over the past few years providing entertainment for the backstretch workers by presenting “Casino Nights” where the backstretch workers play casino games for chips that can be turned in for prizes at the end of the evening.

“We are very happy to be able to support the activities of B.E.S.T., which provided such an important role in the success this summer of the greatest thoroughbred racing in the nation at the Saratoga Race Course,” said William Gibeault, President of the Saratoga Springs Lions Club.
