Social Lifestyle Magazine had the honor of sponsoring a three-day fundraiser for one of America’s wounded warriors from the 82cd Airborne Division. The fundraiser was a celebration leading up to Sgt. Henline’s ninth year of life on April 7th.
During his third tour in Iraq, Sgt. Bobby Henline’s Humvee hit a roadside bomb. He was burned over 38% of his body and has had over 40 surgeries to survive. The four soldiers he was with were killed on impact. April 7th now has new meaning for Sgt. Henline, a day to celebrate another year of life. Nine years have passed and Sgt. Henline has decided to give back. Not only has he turned his pain into stand up comedy shows, he is planning on opening a restaurant in Texas to help other veterans with employment and recovery. www.BobbyHenline.com.
Between April 5th and April 7th, various people joined Social Lifestyle Magazine to help raise funds for Sgt. Henline’s Go Fund Me. Three shows were produced by Alysia Stern, sponsored by us, along with Truth and Life Fitness, and Boots on the Ground NY. You can find the other sponsors here:

The three-day fundraiser began on The Cooler with Rebecca Berman in New York City. Sgt. Henline called in to the show via video Skype. The show was co-hosted by freestyle legend Soave.
