Stand Up For Heroes 2016 – mit Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen war am 1. November 2016 einer der Stargäste der „10th Annual Stand Up For Heroes“ Gala im „Theater at Madison Square Garden“ in New York City, NY.

Bei dieser Spendengala nahmen ausserdem Louis C.K., Jim Gaffigan, Jerry Seinfeld und Jon Stewart teil. Die Einnahmen kommen der Bob Woodruff Foundation zu Gute.

Über die Bob Woodruff Foundation:

The vision of the Bob Woodruff Foundation is to provide resources and support to injured service members, veterans and their families — building a movement to empower communities nationwide to take action to successfully reintegrate our nation’s injured heroes—especially those who have sustained the Hidden Injuries of War—back into their communities so they may thrive physically, psychologically, socially and economically.

Our Mission is Threefold:

  1. We invest in national and community-based programs that connect our troops to the help they need — from individual needs like job training, career placement, counseling, physical accommodations, to larger social issues like substance abuse and homelessness.
  2. We educate the public about the needs of service members returning from war…and our nation’s greater need to ensure our heroes and families receive the support necessary to have successful futures.
  3. We collaborate with key federal, state, and local experts to identify and solve issues related to the successful return of service members from combat to civilian life.
  4. Together with our partners and supporters in communities across the country, we are healing the physical and hidden wounds of war.

Bruce Springsteen spielte vier Songs und versteigerte seine Gitarre. Ausserdem spendete er dem Käufer eine Ausfahrt in einem 1967er Cadillac sowie ein Mittagessen im „Jersey Freeze Restaurant“ in Freehold, NJ. Schlussendlich ging dieses Angebot für 280.000 $ an einen unbekannten Spender.
