Long Island Wine & Liquor Sales Club honors June Danis
On June 6th 2022, the Long Island Wine & Liquor Sales Club (LIWLSC) honored June Danis, Director of Pricing/Compliance with Southern Glazer Wine & Spirits & Richie Klein, Partner, K&D Wine & Spirits at their 76th Annual Golf Outing to benefit the AHRC Foundation. By actively partnering with community-based organizations that create impact and opportunities within the lives of children and adults with developmental disabilities, the AHRC Foundation focuses its funding programs that advance health and education while promoting independence and inclusion.
“In the late 1940’s, the members of the Long Island Wine & Liquor Sales Club embraced the needs of children and adults with developmental disabilities, and they have never let go,” said Mary McNamara, AHRC Foundation Director, “for over seven decades, the LIWLSC has stood strong”
The LIWLSC commitment to the cause and their important fundraising dollars have made generations of opportunities possible. New construction, renovations, innovative equipment, as well as pilot funds have created opportunities that would not have been possible. Most recently, the AHRC Foundation directed their support to the Wheatley Farms & Arts Center operated by AHRC Nassau. This fully inclusive farm and arts center welcomes people of all abilities under a banner of shared interests. Opportunities to engage in animal care, horticulture, the arts are commencing in fall of 2023.
“The LIWLSC is proud of its enduring commitment to children and adults with developmental disabilities,” said Charles Maneri, President of the LIWLSC. “I look forward to working with my club members and welcome leaders throughout the wine and liquor industry to join with us in creating a better future for us all.”
