The cast first visited the hospital when they began filming in Portland, and have been big supporters ever since. Moved by the families they met and aware of the hospital's greatest needs, they recently established the Grimmster Endowment.
Star Sasha Roiz describes the endowment as “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.”
In addition to a sold-out “Grimm Gala” on Feb. 7, the cast is asking fans to donate money to the cause or to participate in an online memorabilia auction.
The auction, taking place from Jan. 26 to Feb. 4, includes items like the Volcanalis' eye from episode 218, Monroe and Rosalee's cake topper and wedding invitation from episode 322, and drawings from the “Grimm” book, among other items from seasons one through four.
