    Grab a bite to support their fight!

    As part of the organization’s ALS Awareness Month initiatives to raise funds and awareness for people living with ALS, the Brigance Brigade Foundation is excited to present ALS Bites! We know that ALS truly bites and we are working with bars, restaurants and cafes statewide to raise funds to be able to continue to provide these patients with equipment, resource guidance and support services that will improve their daily lives.

    Here’s how it works:
    -- Each restaurant partner has selected a special menu or drink item to dedicate to families fighting ALS. When you enter each establishment, be sure to look for signage, or ask their wait staff, about the item.
    -- For every special item ordered, a portion of the proceeds will be donated back to the Brigance Brigade Foundation at the end of the month.
    -- All you have to do is visit our partners, order the special menu items, and enjoy!

    For those looking to support the Foundation, as well as great local restaurants throughout May, come out and taste the Brigance Brigade-themed items at the following participating locations:
