On Tuesday September 29, the Baltimore Ravens will host the fundraiser “Two Rings for O.J.” at M&T Bank Stadium to raise money for O.J. Brigance’s foundation, The Brigance Brigade.
The event will kick off with a VIP reception at 6:00 p.m. with the main event starting an hour later.
The VIP reception will include autographs with Ravens Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Joe Flacco and Ed Reed. The VIP event will also include a buffet dinner, beer and/or wine, Ravens yearbooks and a goody bag.
While autographs will only be available during the VIP reception, photo opportunities with Ravens’ players will be available throughout the evening.
You’ll also have a chance to bid on autographed Ravens’ jerseys, two club-level seats to the Ravens vs. Bengals game on October 11, and game-worn cleats from a member of the Ravens, as well as a variety of non-Ravens related items up for bid.
O.J. Brigance, a former Baltimore Raven and Baltimore Stallion, is the only player ever to win a Super Bowl and a Grey Cup for the same city. Following his diagnosis with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), O.J. created the Brigance Brigade Fund to raise money for the Packard Center at Johns Hopkins University to assist in finding a cure.
