For 2023, Blake Gives Back will focus on providing an elevator for Triest Hall, where Blake volunteered as a student at La Salle. Triest Hall is a residential home for eight adult men with intellectual challenges. Although run by the Catholic Brothers of Charity, it is non-denominational.

Some of the residents have called Triest Hall their home for more than 25 years and are now in their 60s. Some have arrived in more recent years. They come from mostly small families, having lives at home to mid-age as an “only child” living with aging parents, many of whom are now deceased.

Triest Hall is enhanced by the many volunteers who have been welcomed into the Triest Hall family.

Triest Hall now faces the challenges of aging which affect mobility. The goal at Triest Hall is to maintain optimal functioning for as long as possible for our residents. The home is an old, large, and gracious home from the 1930s affording plenty of space but the downside of lots of stairs.

Perhaps most critical is the need to connect the first floor (where four bedrooms are located along with the kitchen, dining room, TV room, and other common areas) with the lower level (where five additional bedrooms, laundry, and the multipurpose exercise-TV-game space is located).

Blake Gives Back aims to raise funds to replace a perilously dangerous circular stair with a small shaftless residential elevator which will allow the residents to move between floors, maintain their activity levels, and ensure their safety in ambulation.

We look forward to you joining us on July 24, 2023 for the golf outing to help fund this important cause. If you would like to make a more immediate impact, please CLICK HERE to make a donation. Thank you for your support!
