Kansas City Business Journal: Big Slick will go really big in 2019, 'aiming high' for celeb guests

By Katie Bernard

Big Slick will more than triple the size of its annual Saturday night auction and party in 2019. 

In honor of the event's 10th anniversary the June 8 auction and marquee party will be moved from the Arvest Bank Theatre at the Midland to the Sprint Center. Capacity for the event will rise from 1,500 to 5,000.

Beth Hoops told the Kansas City Business Journal that if the event sells out quickly the organization will consider adjusting the set up to sell even more tickets.

The fundraiser for Children's Mercy started 10 years ago as a poker game. It is now a full weekend hosted by Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, David Koechner and Eric Stonestreet. The weekend also includes a baseball game at Kauffman Stadium on June 7 and a bowling tournament at Pinstripes in Overland Park on the morning of June 8.
