On January 25, 2017 Major Lee Berra, USAF, passed away in a tragic plane accident. Losing Lee was the most difficult thing our family has endured, but it motivated us to continue his legacy - to help others in our community as much as Lee helped others in his life. The Berra Family Foundation is a way for our family to make a positive impact in our community and also honor our son, husband, brother, brother-in-law, and uncle.

In his memory, our family intends to fund a fully endowed memorial scholarship in Lee's name at his high school, St. Louis University High School (SLUH). The scholarship will provide a quality education to a financially needy student every year in perpetuity, enabling each young man the opportunity to succeed in life, overcoming economic circumstances.

To raise funds for this scholarship we are hosting a golf benefit in St. Louis on Saturday, May 18, 2019; Armed Forces Day. The Berra Family Foundation will match the money raised from this event. An endowed scholarship at St. Louis University High School requires a $300,000 investment, so we hope to raise $150,000.

We would be honored if you remembered Lee by attending and/or donating to this event. Your contribution will help us keep Lee's legacy alive and make a difference in the lives of young men for years to come.
