Sopranos Reunion This Weekend

The cast of THE SOPRANOS will reunite on Saturday, December 22nd, to raise money for two former crew members' cancer battles.

Six months after the final episode aired, the Soprano family - James Gandolfini, Edie Falco, Jamie-Lynn Sigler; Robert Iler and Michael Imperioli will join up to 20 other cast members at a benefit in New York. The team is reuniting at the Mirage in Westbury, Long Island, to help raise money for two former employees, one of whom is fighting terminal cancer; the other who has beaten the disease but faces crippling medical bills.

Organizer and backstage assistant Jeff Marchanti says of the two anonymous crew members, "(One is) one of our most beloved prop guys, who's been on the show from the beginning. His name is Anthony B., but he wanted to remain nameless. "He's battling lymphoma and nobody knew about it, until a month and a half after we wrapped. Everybody loves the guy because we are absolutely a true family and we're gonna support him in every possible way we can." The other crew member, who is in cancer remission, also asked to remain anonymous.
