Nick Viall Supports Fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi as She Raises $30K for Charity
The Bachelor star showed love for the Canada native at her first fundraiser on Sunday, July 16 for her charity No Better You, which looks to support special education by providing tools and programs for people with special needs.
Participants worked out alongside the Bachelor Nation couple and partook in a Q&A session following the workout.
"Thank you to everyone that came, those who donated online, to all my volunteers and to @ardene for believing and supporting the cause!" she wrote on Instagram.
And, not only was the event a success, it raised thousands of dollars to provide sensory rooms for schools in Montreal, Canada, which can cost anywhere from $30K to $100K.
“It’s a therapeutic space for students. It can help stimulate or calm students down,” the brunette beauty told Global News.
Vanessa was a special education teacher before her time on the popular ABC show, so this fundraiser is right up her alley.
The two-time Bachelorette runner-up shared a sweet message with his fans, praising Vanessa on a job well done.
"Couldn't be more proud of my girl @vanessagrimaldi30 for raising over 30k in her first fundraising event for @nobetteryou," he wrote on alongside a picture of the pair.
"Congrats babe!! #happy #proud #charity."
Following the event, the 29-year-old expressed immense gratitude for those who came out to support the cause.
"Today's fundraiser was an incredible success! We had such great support, from the volunteers, to the fans, the vendors, to all the sponsors,” she told E! News.
“I am beyond thankful for everyone's donation! We raised over $30,000, which will go towards opening a sensory room in two to three schools in the Montreal area."
The 36-year-old also applauded all the hard work Vanessa put into planning this event, which wasn’t easy as she did most of it from Los Angeles!
“She’s put a lot of work into it so it’s nice to see it come to fruition, but I’m not surprised at all,” Nick continued.
“I knew she’d do a great job even though she was a little worried.”
Congrats on a job well done, Vanessa!
