New York Alcoholic Beverage Control Law
The liquor authority is hereby authorized to issue a charitable permit to an organization to sell alcoholic beverages, at auction or otherwise, where the authority is satisfied:
that contributions made by an individual donor to such organization are deductible for Federal income tax purposes;
that the funds so raised will be used for the non-profit purposes of the organization;
that all such alcoholic beverages shall be in sealed containers; and
that not more than eighty cases shall be sold. Such permit shall be valid for a twenty-four hour period commencing at eight o’clock a.m. and only during the hours when such alcoholic beverages may lawfully be sold by retail licensees in the county in which the auction or sale is held. No alcoholic beverages sold pursuant to such permit shall be consumed on the premises at which they are sold.
The fee for a one-day charitable permit shall be twenty dollars.
