Tom Gleisner Awarded an AOFriday, June 22 2018
A huge congratulations to Tom on receiving an Officer of the Order of Australia in the Queen’s Birthday Honours!
Tom is a patron, co-founder, and board member of the Learning For Life Autism Centre. He is always ready and willing to help our cause. Some of the ways he lends his time and talents are hosting our events (Gala Balls, Kwiz for the Kidz, Nine & Dine Golf day), running the 10km course at Run Melbourne (this year will be his 10th time!), and presenting at autism conferences, just to name a few!
Tom is also the Chairman for Challenge, supporting kids with cancer. Since 1991, he has played a pivotal role in the development of Challenge. His gift to Challenge has been his holistic approach across all management streams giving the organisation direction and stability.
Tom is so generous with his time supporting both causes, and all at L4Life (families, board, staff and supporters) are so appreciative for all his dedication and passion in supporting the work we do. Thank you Tom!
