On Wednesday, November 5, the inaugural Dine Out for Heroes event will take place in New York. The restaurant-based community movement is a new partnership for the Bob Woodruff Foundation, and will take place on the same day as the eighth annual Stand Up for Heroes fundraiser.
ABC News Journalist Bob Woodruff co-founded the foundation with his family after being critically injured while on assignment in Iraq.
Daniel Boulud, Andrew Carmellini, Jeffrey Lefcourt, Drew Nieporent, Simon Oren, Eric Ripert and Jeff Zalaznick, with Bob Grimes and Lockhart Steele have joined Dine for Heroes, among other prominent New York City restaurateurs.
More than 110 restaurants in New York City will participate on November 5, and will donate $1 to the Bob Woodruff Foundation for every patron that evening.
Participating restaurants include The Lamb’s Club, Le Bernardin, Lincoln Center Kitchen, Aureole, Betony, Nobu New York, Carbone, Blue Smoke, Charlie Palmer Steak, Wallsé, and dozens more. Find the full list of participating restaurants online, and make a reservation that will benefit the BWF.
“We’ve always been so proud of Stand Up for Heroes, and I am looking forward to the inaugural year of Dine Out for Heroes,” said Woodruff. “We have seen what can happen when a movement of generosity inspires thousands more to act, and we know the New York community will come together to salute our injured service members and their families yet again.”
