Brigance. The party benefited the Brigance Brigade Foundation, which raises funds to help patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and their families. Brigance and his wife, Chanda Brigance, created the foundation after he was diagnosed with ALS in 2007. Sloane Brown, For The Baltimore Sun
