Westborough – Shriners Hospital for Children, Boston and Springfield recently announced the yearly total of $10,000 raised by Keeper of the Quaich and Julio’s Liquors owner Ryan Maloney. The announcement and recognition of this great effort took place at the store’s weekly “Whisk(e)y Wednesday” meeting.

In recognition of money raised for the Aleppo Shrine Children’s Transportation Fund, the Shriners presented Maloney with a certificate recognizing his, “dedication to the philanthropic values and purposes.”

Harlan Woods, Potentate of the Aleppo Shriners added, “It’s all about the kids as far as Aleppo is concern and that’s why what Julio’s does is so important. Med flights can cost over $30,000, which only includes transportation. We also keep the children’s parents with them when we can. Now that Julio’s has raised over $40,000, we can say they have saved a life. As long as we have money in our account, if the kid needs us, we take care of them.”

“When a great charitable cause is combined with a shared passion, it becomes more meaningful,” said Maloney, a Keeper of the Quaich, who also organizes the ‘Loch & Key Whisk(e)y Society.’

“Whisk(e)y enthusiasts are very conscious about efforts that benefit our community,” he added.

Julio’s Liquors is located on 140 Turnpike Road in Westborough. For more information visit  www.juliosliquors.com.
