Posted on

It’s the season of giving, and Sting and his wife Trudie Styler are doing just that.

The couple will host a night of power performances to raise money for the Rainforest Fund at their biennial benefit concert. This year’s gala, “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” marks 27 years of the fund and will be held Dec. 14 at Carnegie Hall.

Sting and Bruce Springsteen are slated to perform at the star-studded event, along with Chris Botti, Darlene Love, Ronnie Spector and James Taylor.

Past concerts have featured performances by artists Elton John and Lady Gaga.

The performers will take the stage to raise awareness for the work the Rainforest Fund provides to communities of indigenous peoples throughout Brazil and other countries, including Belize, Cameroon, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mexico, Nicaragua, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Suriname and Venezuela.

Since its inception in 1989, Rainforest Fund co-founders Sting and Styler have raised $30 million for the charity’s projects and programs through this concert.

The duo created the Rainforest Fund to conserve the environment and support hundreds and thousands of indigenous people in their fight to protect their rights to their own land, livelihoods and cultures.

Tickets are currently on sale at the box office, via telephone (212-247-7800) or online at http://www.carnegiehall.org. For more information on the Rainforest Fund, visit www.rainforestfund.org.
