Stand Up For Heroes 2018 – mit Bruce Springsteen

Bruce Springsteen wird sich auch in diesem Jahr an der “Stand Up For Heroes” Benefizgala beteiligen.

Am 5. November 2018 wird Bruce Springsteen im “Theater At Madison Square Garden” in New York City auftreten, um Spendengelder für die gemeinnützige “Bob Woodruff Foundation” zu sammeln.

Ausserdem haben die Comedians Jimy Carr, Seth Meyers, Jon Stewart, Jim Gaffigan sowie der Countrysänger Eric Church ihr Kommen angekündigt.

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.
