Jackman has long been involved with the Motion Picture & Television Fund, a 92-year-old charity that provides healthcare and retirement services to those in the entertainment community.

"Films, television and theater have brought me great success throughout my career, and it is one of my greatest pleasures to give back by putting on a show as a benefit to support MPTF," Jackman said in a statement.

The "One Night Only" event, co-chaired by 20th Century Fox CEO Jim Gianopulos, will also include a live and online auction.

American Express presale tickets go online Friday; tickets for the general public will be available Friday, Aug. 9. Prices have not been announced.

"The Wolverine," Jackman's latest on-screen adventure, hits theaters Friday.
