The Bob Woodruff Foundation announced today that “The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart will emcee this year’s Stand Up for Heroes event. The 2011 Grammy Award-winning band Train will perform live.

The event is scheduled for June 16 at the Ronald Reagan Building. The release says Washington’s “most powerful” and “influential” people will be on hand. The evening will be hosted by Bob and Lee Woodruff and will include a reception and dinner. WaPo‘s Bob Woodward, ABC News’ Martha Raddatz and PBS’s Judy Woodruff will attend in addition to more than 60 wounded warriors and their caregivers.

Proceeds will aid the Bob Woodruff Foundation.
