Portland, OR. The 3rd Grimm Gala was sold out. The benefit on January 28th at the Exchange Ballroom supported Doernbecher’s mission of caring for kids. Cast members were out in force to give back to the community they’ve called home for the past six years. It’s the last season of the show and the last Doernbecher gala for cast members David Giuntoli, Russell Hornsby, Bitsie Tulloch, Silas Weir Mitchell, Sasha Roiz, Reggie Lee, Bree Turner, Claire Coffee.
Proceeds from the Grimm Gala will fund the Grimmster Endowment at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital Foundation. After members of the Grimm cast visited patients at Doernbecher, they were inspired to establish the Grimmster Endowment, an endowed fund to help provide patients and families critical support associated with uncompensated care, travel, lodging and other services integral to the care and comfort of our most vulnerable patients. Before the last gala, the Grimmster Endowment had already raised more than $652,000 for the kids at Doernbecher. This video shows the actor’s committment to the hospital.
Sponsors for the Grimm Gala included Comcast, NBCUniversal and Nike.
Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the 50 best children’s hospitals in the nation, Doernbecher sees patients from all over the state of Oregon and beyond. Each year, we treat more than 66,000 patients, half of whom are under-insured. It is because of the commitment and generosity of our community that we are able to care for the children who need us the most.
