On Tuesday, June 19, Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Silver Shells Resort hosted the community, loyal patrons and guests at a fundraiser for longtime server Jimma Grimm, who has been battling breast cancer. Held in their East Bar Courtyard, the event raised $22,305 from donations as well as silent auction and live auction items.
Guests enjoyed live music by Michael J Thomas, decadent catering stations specially prepared by the Ruth’s Chris team, a silent auction filled with items donated by local businesses, and a live auction hosted by Luxury Estates Auction Company.
Ms. Grimm announced at the event that she was cancer free and cleared by her doctors earlier that week. One hundred percent of the money raised will go towards Ms. Grimm’s medical expenses and assist with daily living expenses during her time in recovery.
For those who were unable to attend, donations can be made through the We Fight for Jimma GoFundMe page at gofundme.com/WeFightforJimma. Donations may also be dropped off at Ruth’s Chris, located at 15000 Emerald Coast Parkway in Destin.
