Nearly 20 industry members (who were attending the Society of American Florists’ Congressional Action Days) attended the dinner on March 15, 2016 to honor Tom’s legacy in the floral industry.
AFE supporter and longtime friend of Tom Butler, Tim Galea, organized the dinner at Tom’s favorite restaurant – The Capital Grille in Washington, D.C.Tom Butler Dinner15
