As a founding member of the ASOC in 1964, Tom Gialde was a pioneer for Italian-American worker and civil rights. He championed many initiatives, at both the city and state level, to ensure Italian-Americans had the ability to pursue the American Dream. An avid player of many sports, Mr. Gialde always enjoyed the game of bocce. He, along with his brother Stan, promoted the sport throughout the Kansas City community. The ASOC is proud to name its invitational bocce tournament in his honor.
