The Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) announced today the upcoming launch of the second annual ‘Dine Out for Heroes,’ a dining event experience benefiting BWF.

Following the success of last year’s one-day-only event, ‘Dine Out For Heroes’ will extend to five days for the worthy cause, running Monday, Nov. 9 through Friday, Nov. 13, across New York City. The Bob Woodruff Foundation is the nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that post-9/11 injured service members, veterans and their families thrive long after they return home.

Restaurants wishing to take part will give a contribution, which supports the mission of the Bob Woodruff Foundation and provides restaurants with a number of exciting benefits. Some of this year’s participating restaurants include Michael Jordan’s The Steak House N.Y.C., Gallaghers Steakhouse, The Smith, The Lambs Club, BLT Steak & BLT Prime, Jane Restaurant, RedFarm Hudson, and Tribeca Grill.

‘Dine Out for Heroes’ (#Dine4Heroes) will coincide with the annual Stand Up for Heroes event in NYC. Stand Up for Heroes is a collaboration between BWF and the New York Comedy Festival (NYCF) and has raised more than $26 million to date to support injured service members and their families. Since its inception in 2007, Stand Up for Heroes has featured performers such as Louis C.K., Stephen Colbert, Jim Gaffigan, Ricky Gervais, John Mayer, Conan O’Brien, John Oliver, Jerry Seinfeld, Jon Stewart, Bruce Springsteen, Robin Williams and more. Now in its ninth year, Stand Up for Heroes will kick off the 2015 NYCF, Nov. 10.

“Dine Out for Heroes is an easy, enjoyable way for New Yorkers to honor the sacrifices of our brave men and women in uniform,” said Bob Woodruff, ABC News correspondent and co-founder of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “We are extremely grateful to participating restaurants for helping us ensure that injured veterans and their families have the resources they deserve.”

The Bob Woodruff Foundation is also partnering with American Express as a sponsor of this year’s ‘Dine Out for Heroes’ program.

‘Dine Out for Heroes’ plans to uphold its mission to “Dine. Donate. Honor. Heal,” by raising money and awareness for the organization. With 140 restaurants having participated in its first year, ‘Dine Out For Heroes’ hopes to unite even more restaurants and members of the New York community to join the movement in 2015.

‘Dine Out for Heroes’ is spearheaded by Peter and Penny Glazier, founders of The Glazier Group of restaurants with Caroline Hirsch and Andrew Fox, founders of the New York Comedy Festival, and Bob and Lee Woodruff, co-founders of the Bob Woodruff Foundation.

“The inaugural ‘Dine Out For Heroes’ was a huge success. We were overwhelmed with the amount of support received from patrons,” said Penny Glazier and Caroline Hirsch. “We look forward to welcoming new New York restaurants and community members.”

Together, these efforts will continue to honor the sacrifice of returning service members, veterans and their families by offering support in the effort to heal the physical and psychological wounds of war. To date, BWF has invested more than $28 million in more than 260 programs nationwide.

Jane Goodall Urges UPS To Stop Shipping Hunting Trophies

Jane Goodall: Profile

Jane Goodall has penned a letter urging UPS to stop shipping wildlife trophies.

“In the wake of Cecil the Lion’s cruel and untimely death, I am writing to you in the hope that UPS will join many of the world’s major airlines and impose a ban on transporting hunting trophies as soon as possible,” she wrote. “As I’m sure you know, Cecil was illegally lured out of the safety of his protected territory at Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. He was shot by a Minnesota dentist with a crossbow, left to suffer for 40 hours, shot again — this time with a gun — and killed. He was then beheaded and skinned, leaving his family of cubs fatherless and vulnerable. As lions attempt to take over a pride, they eliminate the genes of their rivals and because of Cecil’s murder, one of his cubs has already been killed by a rival male.

“Cecil’s story was special because he was an icon in Zimbabwe, but the story of suffering and impact on family is similar for hundreds of animals each year as a result of trophy hunters – who consider their behavior “sport”. One of the goals of a trophy hunter is to take the head or other body parts of the animals he has killed and proudly exhibit them in his home for all his friends to admire. It would make a huge difference if it became more and more difficult to achieve this despicable goal.

“It would be wonderful if UPS would join the other companies who are now refusing to ship body parts of rhinos, elephants, lions, tigers and other wild animals. I am sure that you are as horrified as I am by this killing to gratify the ego.”

Cabo Verde Hit by First Hurricane in a Century : Image of the Day

According to several reports, Fred appears to be the easternmost hurricane to form in the tropical Atlantic during the satellite era. (Extra-tropical Hurricane Vince formed briefly off Portugal in 2005.) It is also believed to be the first hurricane to hit Cabo Verde (Cape Verde) islands since 1892. The storm did not cause any casualties, nor did it make direct landfall on any of the islands, but it did cause flash flooding and extensive wind damage. As much rain was predicted to fall in one day as the islands typically receive in half a year, though totals are not yet available.
