Honoring Lisa Maloff

Posted: 07/28/2022

Today we learned of Lisa Maloff’s passing, and while saddened, we are also appreciative of her generosity and purposeful life. Lisa and Robert Maloff left a profound and wide-reaching impact on our community. Their philanthropic efforts included, but was not limited to, local youth organizations, wildlife rescue, and the health system.

The Robert Maloff Center, housing the Barton Center for Orthopedics & Wellness, is a testament to the Maloff’s hope for a healthy and vibrant Lake Tahoe community. Their contribution and vision for the Center has changed people’s bodies, minds, and ultimately their lives.

 “When a butterfly flaps its wings the effect is said to be global. When the Angel of Tahoe takes flight, the effect is brilliant and local. Mrs. Lisa Maloff, Angel Extraordinaire, thank you. Your generosity has had a profound and direct impact on my life…” 
 - Suzanne (Zan) Floyd, Robert Maloff Center Patient

Donations in Lisa’s honor can be made to the Boys & Girls Club of Lake Tahoe. Cards and pink carnations can be delivered to the Robert Maloff Center (2170B South Avenue, South Lake Tahoe, CA 96150).

Lisa Maloff’s generosity was meaningful and inspiring, and we are forever grateful.
