Kansas City’s most famous celebrity do-gooders — Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis — are headin’ home for their annual Big Slick Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party July 19-20.

The weekend will raise money for the Children's Mercy Hospital Cancer Center. The fun kicks off at 5:30 p.m. July 19 with the Celebrity Wiffle Ball Game at the Little K at Kauffman Stadium before the Royals play the Detroit Tigers.

On Saturday morning, the guys and some of their celebrity friends – Eric Stonestreet, Jon Hamm and Olivia Wilde (Jason’s future wife) came last year – will play in the Big Slick Celebrity Texas Hold’em Poker Tournament at Harrah’s Kansas City.

You can play, too — $500 buys you a seat at the table.

The weekend concludes at the Midland Theatre on Saturday night at the Big Slick Celebrity Party & Auction. Tickets range from $75 to $1,000 for a limited number of VIP passes.

(Bigger bucks will get you up-close-and-personal time with the guys.)
