Grimes, a 42-year-old Carver resident and HealthBridge executive, was recently diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer, despite being a lifelong non-smoker. He will receive the fund’s initial grants.
“This fund, named in Dan’s honor, is intended to assist employees and their families who are struggling with similar circumstances to Dan,” Sharon Donaghue, VP of Operations at CareOne, said. “A good portion of the proceeds will go to Dan and his young children, the balance will go to other employees and employees families with similar challenges. The fund will continue to grow with continued contributions.”
TV personality and former NFL star Michael Strahan will serve as master of ceremonies at the event, which will also include appearances by Bruins announcer Jack Edwards and Red Sox mascot Wally the Green Monster. Attendees will be able to take part in raffles, ballpark tours, and silent auctions.
