OUR PARTNERS, OUR CHARITIES, OUR COMMUNITY
TOMMY'S KID OF THE MONTH PROGRAM
In 2011, owner, Yvette Bonfiglio, found a second calling to help children and their families effected by pediatric cancer. At the time, she was unaware of how far and of how many lives she would come to touch. Yvette is passionate about being a helping hand in pediatric cancer awareness, research and embracing each family as her own.
In 2013, Tommy and Yvette were honorees of the 2nd annual Ashley Lauren Foundation Butterfly Ball; being recognized for all of their devotion to the foundation and families involved. In 2016, they hosted "Make Some Noise" which invited all families, charities and loved ones to an event to raise awareness for childhood cancer.
Yvette and Tommy have created a program called "Tommy's Kid of The Month". This program selects a child and their family each month to help raise money and support them during that month. Also during this time, the "kid of the month" is invited to come cook with the chefs of Tommy's and enjoy a day revolved around them.
ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL
Tommy and Yvette Bonfiglio were surprised in August by a visit from St. Jude, with a beautiful plaque to thank them for all of their work and inviting them to the 2016 gala, which they attended in Memphis, Tennessee in September.
Since, they have become active with St. Jude and as of March 1, 2017 have launched a "Round Up & Give Hope" campaign within Tommy's Tavern + Tap, they are the first company in the area to create and launch such a campaign. They have given each person who visits Tommy's the opportunity to donate to St. Jude by rounding up their final bill and sending donations directly to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
