Friday, November 20. Lunchtime. Come and meet Tommy McFly while DC still has him. One wag joked that Ryan Seacrest ought to watch his career because Tommy might get a piece of it. He is that multi-talented. He's the host of the Tommy Show, weekdays from 5 to 9 am on 94.7 Fresh FM.
The Washington Business Journal included Tommy in its “40 Under 40” roster. He takes an active role in every segment of Washington and sets service as a high priority. He’s the chairman of the Washington Humane Society’s marquee event, Fashion for Paws, which has raised more than $2.2 million in just six years.
Additionally, Tommy works with Best Buddies, GW University Mobile Mammography Unit, The American Red Cross, Chris4Life Colon Cancer Foundation, The Alzheimer’s Association, and many other organizations on projects throughout the year. His charitable engagement scored him an invitation to a small lunch with President Barack Obama to discuss the Affordable Care Act. From The Washington Post: “Yes, of course,” the president had said when Tommy introduced himself. “You’re the DJ.”
Also at The George Town Club, $35 all inclusive of lunch, soft beverages, tax and tip.
