Actors Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, David Koechner and Eric Stonestreet are hosting the Sixth Annual Big Slick Celebrity Weekend, benefitting the Cancer Center at Children’s Mercy. The event takes place the weekend of June 19 in Kansas City, but people across the country can help and get a taste of the Big Slick experience by joining the Big Slick CrowdRise campaign.
Support the cause, earn limited-edition Big Slick gear and fuel some friendly competition by donating to one of the five host teams. No matter who comes out on top, it’s the kids at Children’s Mercy who win!
MORE ABOUT BIG SLICK:
Big Slick started in 2010 as a celebrity poker tournament and party hosted by Riggle, Rudd and Sudeikis. Over the past four years, celebrity friends such as Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Olivia Wilde, Johnny Knoxville, John Oliver and Nick Kroll, as well as Koechner and Stonestreet (now co-hosts), have attended.
Now approaching its sixth year, Big Slick has donated more than $2.4 million to Children’s Mercy, helping the non-profit hospital expand its Bone Marrow Transplant Unit and family/play rooms; add entertainment systems to every oncology hospital room; and purchase more than $500K in advanced early detection equipment.
Big Slick 2015 will take place in Kansas City on Friday, June 19 and Saturday, June 20 and feature three core events. Celebrity attendees will participate in the Big Slick Celebrity Classic softball game at Kauffman Stadium prior to the Kanas City Royals vs. Boston Red Sox game, the Big Slick Celebrity Bowl bowling tournament at Pinstripes Bistro, Bowling & Bocce and the Big Slick Celebrity Party & Auction at the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland.
