‘Grimm’ Cast and Fans Raise $310k for Children’s Hospital in Portland

The “Grimm” team has made a difference in Portland. The cast, crew, and fans of NBC’s hit TV drama “Grimm,” which is set and filmed in Portland, Oregon, raised $310,000 for the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital with the establishment of the Grimmster Endowment, by making a donation or by participating in an exclusive online auction of memorabilia from the show.

 

Over the weekend, Sasha Roiz (who plays Captain Sean Renard on the show) spearheaded the Grimm Gala in Portland, Ore., to raise funds for the Grimmster Endowment (“a patient-assistance fund that provides children and families critical support associated with uncompensated care, travel, lodging and other services integral to the care and comfort of the most vulnerable patients,” according to Roiz) which benefits the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. The goal of the evening was to raise $100,000, but Portlanders and “Grimm” fans ended up contributing $310,000.

“Over the past few years, my fellow cast and crew members and I have fallen in love with the city. Since Portland has given us so much, we wanted to give something back,” said Sasha Roiz, who plays Captain Sean Renard on “Grimm.” “The cast visited OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital not long after coming to Portland, and we were moved by the families, the kids and everything the hospital does to ensure that patients receive the best possible care in a supportive, family-centered environment. We also were made aware of the hospital’s areas of greatest need, which inspired us to establish the Grimmster Endowment, a patient-assistance fund that provides children and families critical support associated with uncompensated care, travel, lodging and other services integral to the care and comfort of the most vulnerable patients.”
