Adios to Tom


Tom Lye, second from left, completed his three-year Board term with austin Samaritans this summer.  The only reason we let him go was his promise to keep working on our annual Golf Scramble.  Tom has been an invaluable member of the Golf Scramble planning committee, as well as an enthusiastic and faithful Board member.
Beginning first as a player in the golf tournament, Tom became more involved with Austin Samaritans and graduated to service on the Board of Directors, serving as the liaison to the golf fundraiser committee.  In 2013, he was awarded the first ever “Sponsor Magnet Award” for recruiting 16 sponsors for the tournament.  He deserves much of the credit for the 2013 tournament raising significantly more funds than previous tournaments.  He has recruited others to serve on the committee and has a lifetime job as far as we are concerned.  Thank you Tom!
