The Black Eyed,, Taboo and Fergie – will perform a special charity concert to benefit Robin Hood, NYC’s largest poverty fighting charity, next month.

The concert will take place on The Great Lawn in Central Park on June 9, and will be joined by some of their celebrity friends (TBA). 54,000 tickets will be given away in a random draw, and a number of tickets will be available in return for a donation to Robin Hood.

Robin Hood holds steadfast to a single mission: fight poverty in New York City. They find, fund, create and nurture programs and schools that generate measurable results for families in New York’s poorest neighborhoods. They work closely with the organizations they support to help them to be more effective, thus helping even more people. In 2010, Robin Hood invested $130 million in 200 programs and schools, helping over 400,000 New Yorkers. A rigorous system of metrics and third-party evaluation of these groups guarantee accountability. Robin Hood’s board pays all administrative, fundraising and evaluation costs, so 100 percent of donations (over $1 billion to date) goes directly to helping poor New Yorkers.

Lady Gaga is also currently running fundraising initiatives for Robin Hood, and will appear at the charity’s annual gala on May 9.
