Suit & Tie: A Voice with a Choice
April 26, 2018 @ 6:30PM — 9:30PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
Benefits the Brigance Brigade Foundation's fight against ALS
Join Drew Vanlandingham and Vanlandingham Design Studio for an evening of music with four Classical, Theater, Jazz, Country, and Pop artists.
The concert will be full of energy, excitement and will be dedicated to Lynn Kotz and her family; one of Baltimore's most prestigious Event Planners who battled ALS until 2012 and was supported by Brigance Brigade Foundation with the provision of an eye-gaze communication device.
Every piece of the evening was donated, which means every dollar is going directly to support ALS families via Brigance Brigade Foundation. Following Suit & Tie: A Voice with a Choice concert, will be an after party with drinks, food, and ALS Champions: O.J. and Chanda Brigance, co-founders of Brigance Brigade Foundation.
The Suite & Tie event will be held Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 6:30PM at The Grand: 225 North Charles Street, Baltimore. Tickets are $75 per person, with additional opportunities to get involved throughout the night. Please note: concert begins sharply at 6:30PM and space is limited.
