Final ‘Grimm Gala’ Starring Cast and Crew of NBC’s Hit Drama ‘Grimm’ to Benefit OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital

The Gala, Presented by Comcast and NBCUniversal, Funds Grimmster
Endowment for Hospitalized Kids and Families

PORTLAND, Ore.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Portland-based cast and crew of NBC’s “Grimm” will, for the last
time, celebrate the star-studded “Grimm Gala” on Saturday, Jan. 28, 2017
to benefit the children and families of OHSU Doernbecher Children’s
Hospital. Presented by Comcast and NBCUniversal, the sold-out event is a
fundraiser for the Grimmster Endowment, which supports uncompensated
care, travel, lodging, and other services integral to the care and
comfort of OHSU Doernbecher’s patients and families in need. This is the
sixth and final season of “Grimm,” which has been a longstanding hit for

“Grimm” actor Sasha Roiz, who plays Captain Sean Renard, inspired both
the Grimmster Endowment and the “Grimm Gala.” “As this is our final
season of ‘Grimm,’ I have extraordinary expectations for this year’s
Gala,” said Roiz. “We plan to leave the Grimmster Endowment well
financed, as a lasting gift to the children and families of Oregon for
their warm welcome over the past six years.”

This is the third year that Comcast and NBCUniversal have underwritten
the “Grimm Gala,” ensuring that every penny raised that evening goes to
the Endowment. Last year’s Gala raised $386,000. A portion of those
funds came from the sale of one-of-a-kind merchandise created by Nike,
which was auctioned at the Gala. Nike will repeat that opportunity for
Gala attendees this year, with some new, limited-edition shoes and
outerwear created specifically for “Grimm” and the Gala.

As host of the Gala, Comcast’s Regional Senior Vice-President Rodrigo
Lopez says the company’s commitment to community investment in Oregon
and Southwest Washington is deep. “It has been an honor to present the
‘Grimm Gala’ and contribute to such a worthy cause. On behalf of the
2,000 Comcast employees who call Oregon/SW Washington home, we will
continue to invest in the communities we serve.”
