Stand Up For Heroes
Since its inception in 2007, Stand Up for Heroes has raised more than $57 million to create long-lasting, positive outcomes for our nation’s impacted veterans, service members, and their families.
Stand Up for Heroes launched in 2007 as the brainchild of Bob and Lee Woodruff and New York Comedy Festival founders Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox, and is one of New York’s most anticipated nights of hope, healing and laughter, honoring our nation’s injured veterans and their families. Since its inception in 2007, SUFH has raised more than $55 million to create long-lasting, positive outcomes for our nation’s injured veterans, service members and their families.
