The Sopranos stars Lorraine Bracco and Steve Schirripa will be joined by showbiz pals Danny DeVito, Hilary Duff and Teri Hatcher at this Saturday’s Keep Memory Alive fundraising event at the Bellagio. It will be the final performance of Siegfried & Roy’s illusions -- and the first and only time they have been on stage since 2003 when Roy was injured in a tiger incident.

Each day this week, we’ll run down some of the amazing auction items up for bid at the event being recorded for ABC’s 20/20 airing March 6. Three super star chefs -- Nobu Matsuhisa, Wolfgang Puck and Eric Ripert of Le Bernardin -- are putting themselves up for auction, and each will come to your home and cook a dinner for 30 people complete with wines and spirits served by a master sommelier.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning will meet the winning bidder after a game they’ll watch in team owner Jonathan Tisch’s super-suite, and then everybody goes off for dinner with star chef Emeril Lagasse! The package includes a private jet to and from Las Vegas to New York.

Tomorrow, we’ll have the details of contributions from Robin Williams, Andre Agassi and Steffi Graff. A limited number of tickets are still available for sale, and information can be found at www.keepmemoryalive.org.
