'Golden Girls' star Bea Arthur leaves $300,000 in will to NY group that helps gay homeless youths

Bea Arthur left $300,000 in her will to a NY organization that aids homeless gay youth.

The Ali Fornay Center provides services to more than 1,000 each year, and is planning to buy a building to house 12 young people - and name it in honor of the "Golden Girls" actress.

The head of the center said he is thrilled with the stage and television legend's generosity.

"We work with hundreds of young people who are rejected by their families because of who they are," said Executive Director Carl Siciliano.

With all the wonderful things Miss Arthur has done in her life including the Ali Center, wouldn't it be great to see her final interview, in HER OWN WORDS talking about her career etc.

Heard you on the radio today and I thought you might like it.

We need to contact Merv Griffin Productions and see if entire interview will be aired.

I'd hate for an full interview with Bea or the other ladies in the clip to go unseen.

All the best,
