ST. MARK'S CHURCH
BGB held a Christmas Eve collection for St. Mark’s Church in Frankfort. We collected $600 in gift cards and cash, 10 bags full of pantry and emergency grocery provisions, and 14 warm blankets that touched the lives of more than 70 people this winter.
BGB and Triest Hall held a pizza night for volunteers and residents for a special community evening. A video about Triest Hall by Blake Gives Back is also in the works… pictured here is Blake’s sister Alexis interviewing Louis, one of the wonderful Triest Hall residents.
The neighborhood Blake grew up in has been very supportive of his family, putting on a Block Party and Super Bowl pool. All funds were donated to Triest Hall.
Blake’s sister Alexis’s lacrosse team had an “Orange Out” and donated proceeds to Simon’s Heart, organization working toward prevention of sudden cardiac arrest in children.
A NIGHT AT SKRAMBLE
Our friends at Skramble House of Golf hosted a much-welcomed night out with pizza and fun remembering Blake for his friends and family.
Blake’s Friends and Family were a major sponsor for and volunteered at the 2022 Simon’s Heart Golf Outing.
