Ricky Gervais, Whoopi Goldberg and Bruce Springsteen have agreed to appear at a benefit in New York next month.

The 2nd annual Stand Up for Heroes: A Benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation is slated to take place on November 5 at the Town Hall in Manhattan in conjunction with the New York Comedy Festival.

“Our 2nd annual ‘Stand Up for Heroes’ event is an opportunity to give back to our wounded service members in gratitude for their sacrifices,” said television journalist Bob Woodruff. “Together we can help our injured troops overcome the challenges they face as they re-integrate into society.”

Woodruff established his foundation after being badly injured by a roadside bomb while reporting in Iraq in 2006. He says the aim of the Foundation is to raise awareness and money to assist members of the U.S. military injured while serving.

Regis Philbin will serve as host at the concert, while Gervais, John Pinette, and Springsteen are to perform. Both Goldberg and James Niven of Sotheby’s are to make special appearances as the event’s guest auctioneers.
