KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Big Slick KC is back again in 2021 with a new kind of fundraiser to support Children’s Mercy Hospital.
Big Slick KC is usually a weekend of events that benefit the hospital, particularly focused on childhood cancer eradication and pediatric medicine.
The normal cast of characters will reunite, the second weekend of June will be unlike any other.
As of 2010, actors and KC natives Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis got together to raise money for the hospital.
They have since asked actors Eric Stonestreet and David Koechner to join them in the fight against childhood cancer. They usually invite all their famous friends like Will Ferrell, Jon Hamm, Selena Gomez and more to come to Kansas City to play softball at Kauffman Stadium and put on a variety show at T-Mobile Center.
Since inception, they have helped raise more than $ 12 million.
The 2020 event was forced to go virtual thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The group will learn the virtual lessons from 2020 to make the event in 2021 even better.
It’s called “The Big Slick Virtually Talented Show.”
In a press release, the five guys and 30 famous faces will post a “one hour full original production”.
A description of the show includes “Professional performances will be attempted. Hidden skills can be discovered. Raw talent is not guaranteed.”
The talent show will premiere on Saturday 12 June at 7.30 pm. You can watch it for free on the Big Slick website, YouTube and Facebook page.
Made in KC and Big Slick KC have teamed up to offer an exclusive T-shirt that the fundraiser can contribute $ 50 to, which can be purchased from the Big Slick website.
The two groups also create party packs for groups of ten to enjoy while watching the show. They are available for $ 2,500. For more information, check out the Big Slick website.
