New York State Liquor Store Association Donates to Albany Medical Center, Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders 

Albany, NY…September 24, 2014 – The New York State Liquor Store Association (NYSLSA) today presented a $1,000 donation check to the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at Albany Medical Center.  

"We proudly host our Annual Tradeshow in Albany, which is a big draw for business owners in liquor retail and restaurant industries all over the Capital Region, coming out year after year in droves to support our association. We wanted to give back and show our commitment to the community,” stated Tom Edwards, NYSLSA President.  

NYSLSA will hold its 5th Annual Holiday Tradeshow on October 14, 2014 in Colonie at the Desmond Hotel and Conference Center, 2 – 8 pm, and on October 16, 2014 in Rochester at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center, 2 – 8 pm. The Tradeshow featured over 150 vendors and attracts roughly 1,000 attendees. Admission to both events is free. 

NYSLSA selected the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders due to its work with children in the community, especially during the month of September, Children’s Cancer Awareness Month, as the Center raises awareness through fundraising initiatives, research and other programs. NYSLSA was created as a product of the merger of Empire State Liquor Association and the Eastern New York Liquor Association.

The mission of NYSLSA is to create a stronger presence of retailers within the industry and to represent the political and business interests of liquor store owners throughout the state. NYSLSA focuses on the 1,100 licensed retail owners located in the 54 counties of Upstate New York.
