COACHELLA, Calif., April 4 (UPI) -- Former "Saturday Night Live" stars Joe Piscopo, Victoria Jackson and Don "Father Guido Sarducci" Novello are to appear at a benefit show in Coachella, Calif.

The "Saturday Night Live Reunion Tour" is to benefit Gilda's Club Desert Cities, a free support community for men, women and children touched by cancer in the Coachella Valley, organizers said.

The event is to take place May 1 at the Spotlight 29 Casino.

"Gilda's Club brings people together who are experiencing similar situations," Gilda's Club Desert Cities Executive Director Paula Kennedy said in a statement. "Whether you're looking for an understanding ear, a chance to laugh, or an informational resource, Gilda's Club is the place to learn how to live with cancer, whatever the outcome. We are very grateful to Spotlight 29 Casino for hosting this fun event."

Gilda's Club is named for former "SNL" star Gilda Radner, who died of cancer in 1989.
