ABC newsman Bob Woodruff is to be honored at a fundraiser for a Detroit-area children's charity.
He's to be inducted into the Michigan Celebrity Hall of Fame on Friday during the Variety children's charity's "A Star Is Born" event in Royal Oak.
The Michigan Celebrity Hall of Fame was created by the Detroit chapter of Variety. It honors those who have distinguished themselves professionally as well as through their philanthropy.
Past inductees include journalist and author Mitch Albom and the late author Jeffrey Zaslow.
Woodruff grew up in Oakland County. He was nearly killed by a roadside bomb in 2006 while working in Iraq.
The Detroit chapter of Variety was established in 1932 and is dedicated to helping kids in a variety of ways.
