2016 Thomas J. Weisner Humanitarian Award

Inaugural Thomas J. Weisner Humanitarian Award Presented to…Who Else?

We were pleased to honor Aurora Mayor Tom Weisner with the first annual Thomas J. Weisner Humanitarian Award, which reads “For your support of Fox Valley United Way, and for your consistent efforts to improve quality of life for the neediest in our community.”  In subsequent years the recognition will go to an individual who represents the same spirit of caring.

Introducing the award and Mayor Weisner, FVUW CEO Michael Meyer said,

Tom Weisner's tenure as Mayor of Aurora has exemplified how the heart of a humanitarian can change an entire community… His love and compassion for the people of Aurora is evident in his tireless efforts to endorse projects that advance the common good…Though they may never realize it, the most unfortunate in our community owe an incredible debt of gratitude to Mayor Weisner and his passion for truly making a difference.”
