The cast of Everybody Loves Raymond will reunite to honor their late costar Peter Boyle.
According to Deadline, Ray Romano, Patricia Heaton, Brad Garrett, Monica Horan and series creator and executive producer Phil Rosenthal will all appear during the 90-minute event. Taking place Friday, Oct. 23 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT, the reunion will raise money for the Peter Boyle Research Fund of The International Myeloma Foundation.

A few mysterious special guests are scheduled to appear during the event, which will stream on stream on IMF’s YouTube channel, Facebook page and website.
