Jerry Seinfeld, Bruce Springsteen, Jon Stewart and Roger Waters are among the performers set for the 7th annual Stand Up for Heroes benefit in Gotham on Nov. 6 to raise money for wounded service members.

The event is organized by the Bob Woodruff Foundation and held in conjunction with the New York Comedy Festival, which runs Nov. 6-10 at various venues. The Heroes concert will be staged at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.

Stand Up for Heroes has raised $16 million to aid wounded veterans since its inception. This year’s presenting sponsor is the consortium of financial firms known as Veterans on Wall Street.
