The New York State Laborers' Union represents over 40,000 members employed in the construction industry and other fields throughout the state.
Our members are organized into more than 24 local unions and 5 district councils. We are a proud affiliate of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA).
Our 12th Annual Make-A-Wish Golf Classic was held on August 7, 2013 at the Saratoga National Golf Course.
This year we had another successful year with funds raised for the Make-A-Wish of the Northeastern New York Chapter totaling over $30,000.
Each year NYS LECET organizes this tournament to help raise funds for this worthy cause. The funds raised from this event have helped grant many wishes to sick children in New York State.
Throughout the day those in attendance, saw "because of you, a wish came true" on our pin flags and other signage throughout the venue. This serves as a reminder of the significance of this day and of the immediate impact the contributions make.
At the evening reception, everyone enjoyed a "Taste of New York" as we celebrated the many diverse cultures and regional foods that make up our great state.
Also during the evening program, two families helped by our contributions spoke about their trips, one to Disneyland and the other on a Disney cruise.
