On June 14, 2007 Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts) and The Sopranos cast were joined by more than 500 people at Pier Sixty in New York City for a special evening in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Joining Sirico were fellow fellow actors James Gandolfini (Tony Soprano), Steve Schirripa (Bobby Baccalieri), Steve Van Zandt (Silvio Dante), Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti), Edie Falco (Carmela Soprano), Aida Turturro (Janice Soprano), Jamie-Lynn DiScala (Meadow Soprano), Lorraine Bracco (Dr. Jennifer Melfi), Robert Iler (Anthony Soprano Jr.), Dominic Chianese (Uncle Junior) and more.
Attendees also had the chance to bid on one-of-a-kind items in a silent and live auction including a unique Sopranos pinball machine, a scooter owned by James Gandolfini, a framed pair of screen worn shoes by Tony Sirico, a number of signed, framed one-of-a-kind cast photos, trips to the Turks and Caicos Film Festival, and a private dinner with The Sopranos cast.
In addition, VIP attendees enjoyed a sunset cruise on the Forbes Highlander yacht with an opportunity for a photo with the cast members in front of the Statue of Liberty.
“Our charity event for St. Jude was outstanding,” Sirico said. “We raised $610,000 for the hospital and had a wonderful time going about it. My thanks to the Forbes family for allowing us the use of their yacht, which added to the event’s theme.”
Sirco added, “Thanks to everyone that made our St. Jude event one very classy night to remember. God bless all the people involved with St. Jude, and God bless all the children.”
