Yes, put the comma after the day of the week.  Don't write the ordinal number.

Yes, that is correct if you add the year, add the second comma. If the boss wants to add the "th", then by all means - keep your job and make the boss happy! The rules are for formal writing. There are many instances when the rules are not followed. Marketing and advertising pieces are good examples of a time for creativity and poetic license.
