Honoring: Tim McCoy, Owner & Operator of McCoy Associates

 

Tim McCoy is the Owner & Operator of McCoy Associates, the franchise that owns several McDonald’s in the Boston area. McCoy owns the McDonald’s in Needham, where Freia David, a Charles River Center participant, recently retired after a 32-year career at the restaurant. This summer, Freia’s retirement received much international attention and highlighted the benefits of employing people with developmental disabilities.  Read the Boston Globe article here.  McCoy, who lives in Wellesley, currently sits on the boards of the Brooks School and Merrimack College in North Andover, Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern New England, and The Genesis Foundation for Children.

Emily Riemer, Co-anchor at WCVB-TV, will emcee. 

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, with nearly 400 people attending, and funds raised at the Gala allow us to continue to provide high-quality services and programs for the 950 children and adults we support.  Hope you can join us!
