The Grimm Gala, hosted by the cast of NBC’s Grimm, raised over $310,000 to establish the Grimmster Endowment for Portland’s OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. Money was raised by selling sponsorships, tickets to the gala and through an online auction of Grimm memorabilia.
Funds from the Grimmster Endowment go toward providing provide children and families critical support associated with uncompensated care, travel, lodging, and other services.
All expenses for the event were covered by Comcast and NBC Universal so that every penny raised would go directly to the endowment.
After four moderately successful weeks on Monday nights – followed by an early hiatus – Grimm returns to NBC’s schedule, in its new regular timeslot, Friday. Follow the jump for two more videos – Russell Hornsby talking about Hank’s journey of discovery in season two, and a Monroe-centric clip from tomorrow night’s episode, The Good Shepherd.
Detective Nick Burkhardt is a Grimm – he can see monsters for what they truly are – one of the last of his kind. The only problem is that he’s got a very short learning curb because now they will be targeting him.
