Sting To Headline Tiger Woods Benefit

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Sting will headline next year's Tiger Woods benefit concert.

The Grammy-winning singer will perform at Tiger Jam IX at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino April 29 in Las Vegas. Proceeds will go to local charities and the Tiger Woods Learning Center, a youth-education facility in Anaheim, Calif.

Tiger Jam, created in 1998 by the Tiger Woods Foundation, has raised more than $8 million.

"Sting is a music icon," the 29-year-old pro golfer said in a recent statement. "I know his personal dedication to philanthropy combined with an amazing show will help us raise awareness and support for the students who attend the Tiger Woods Learning Center."

The center is scheduled to open in early 2006.
