Us reports that Julia Roberts will be among a group of celebrities who will honor the recently deceased Paul Newman at a charity event.

Roberts will be joined by Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, Jack Nicholson, Danny DeVito, Warren Beatty, Annette Benning, Billy Crystal and Danny Glover at a charity stage reading of The World of Nick Adams.

The play adapts several Ernest Hemingway short stories. The reading will be held in San Francisco on October 27, and will benefit the Painted Turtle, which is one of the many summer camps started for terminally-ill children by Newman.

Newman—the iconic star of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Hud and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid—passed away on Friday after a battle with cancer at his home in Westport, Connecticut. He was 83.
