Spring Luncheon 2013

Bob Woodruff, ABC News

Bob Woodruff, Keynote Speaker

Bob Woodruff joined ABC News in 1996 and has covered major stories throughout the country and around the world for the network. He was named co-anchor of "ABC World News Tonight" in December 2005. On January 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq. In February 2007, just 13 months after being wounded in Iraq, Woodruff returned to ABC News with his first on-air report, "To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports". In February 2007, Woodruff and his wife, Lee, co-wrote a bestselling memoir, In an Instant, chronicling his injuries in Iraq and how their family persevered through a time of intense trauma and uncertainty. The Woodruff family established the Bob Woodruff Foundation (BWF) to raise money to assist injured service members, veterans and their families.

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Foundation was chartered in 2004. The Foundation is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which provides support for innovative programs and initiatives that are not presently funded by the police department's budget. The support of the CMPF helps to ensure a safer community.
