We are so excited to finally see this event happen after having to cancel last
spring due to COVID. Dr. Grimm is a valuable part of the MSTDA and Roosevelt
Island community. Her support, care and contributions deserve recognition. She
is truly a STAR! We hope you will all join us in celebrating her.

 MST&DA adds:

Dr. Katherine Teets Grimm will receive Main Street Theatre & Dance
Alliance’s very first STAR AWARD for her extraordinary service to the
Roosevelt Island community at an award ceremony on July 22, 2021. Dr. Grimm,
a longtime supporter of MSTDA, will be acknowledged for her work spanning 50
years as a pediatrician on Roosevelt Island and affiliate with Lenox Hill
Hospital and Mount Sinai Medical Center. Dr. Grimm specializes in Allergy,
Immunology, Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Her work as a medical expert
in child abuse trials is notable. She also served on the RIOC Board for
several years. She is a valued contributor to the well-being of Roosevelt
Islanders and loved by many.

On July 22, the community is invited to MSTDA’s fundraiser and award
ceremony, in partnership with The Sanctuary. It will take place at the
inviting outdoor setting of The Sanctuary at 851 Main Street. Guests will be
treated to an entertaining evening that includes performances by MSTDA
adults, teens and child actors, with a cameo appearance by MSTDA Board
Members. Selections from Dr. Grimm’s favorite musicals, “Sound of Music” and
“Annie,” as well as past MSTDA productions of “Chicago,” “Little Shop of
Horrors” and “Theory of Relativity” will enliven the evening. The program
will feature the talented MSTDA Teen Theatre and the performers will include
many Roosevelt Island patients of pediatrician Dr. Grimm. Folks from the
community will share personal stories and testimonies of how Dr. Grimm has
touched their lives and provided excellent care for them over the years. In
alliance with Dr. Grimm’s admirable work with youth, MSTDA provides
needs-based scholarships and a safe place for children with special needs to
participate in the performing arts. The fundraiser will benefit MSTDA’s
growing scholarship needs and theatre equipment upgrades. The Star Award
Ceremony event is family friendly and all are invited to attend.
