BRONX, NY -- The New York State Automatic Vending Association hailed the best turnout ever for its golf outing fundraiser. The event, held Sept. 1 at the Pelham Split Rock Golf Course here, raised $14,500 for the association's PAC fund, according to NYSAVA president Mike Esposito of Prestige Services (Clifton Park, NY).

During a dinner that followed the golf, NYSAVA lobbyist Matt Tynan thanked members for their support in helping defeat Gov. David Paterson's proposed penny-per-ounce soda tax and maintaining the industry's 75¢ tax exemption. He added that NYSAVA must be ready to continue its efforts to oppose these issues in the coming year and asked for their continued support.

Separately, NYSAVA is urging members to help raise $10,000 for gubernatorial candidate Andrew Cuomo by attending a gala in his honor on Wednesday, Sept. 29, on Long Island. Esposito said the fête will give New York operators a chance to voice their opinions regarding the state bottle bill, tax issues and other issues that affect vending.

The Cuomo event will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the Crest Hollow Country Club, located at 8325 Jericho Turnpike in Woodbury, NY. Email rsvp@andrewcuomo.com or call Brooke Weinstein at (212) 209-3314.
