Hamptons Stands For Heroes - The Bob Woodruff Foundation
On Friday August 28, Joan and George Hornig opened their home to the Bob Woodruff Foundation to host Hamptons Stands for Heroes, which celebrates the extraordinary work of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. While reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces for ABC’s “World News Tonight,” in 2006, Bob was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near in Iraq. His road to recovery was long and difficult. Bob underwent multiple surgeries and an extensive rehabilitation process. Miraculously, just 13 months after the explosion, he returned to work as an ABC correspondent.
After seeing wounded veterans and their caregivers struggle to regain their lives, Bob and Lee were inspired to create the Bob Woodruff Foundation, which raises money and makes grants to innovative programs assisting veterans, their families and their caregivers.
This special evening began with hors d’oeuvres and cocktails overlooking the grounds of the estate. The cocktail reception featured a special performance by US Marine Combat Veteran JW Cortes. Following the cocktail reception, guests headed over to the Hornig’s barn patio for a special VIP dinner, which featured a special performance by singer and songwriter Rachel Brown.
