Next year’s Big Slick Celebrity Weekend fundraiser will take place on June 2 and 3, when its homegrown celebrity hosts will try to surpass the very high bar they set for themselves this year, organizers announced Wednesday. 

The Fab Five — Jason Sudeikis, Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd, Eric Stonestreet and David Koechner — and a stage full of their Hollywood pals raised a record $3.5 million for the Cancer Center at Children’s Mercy last June.

This was a comeback year for the event, which had been forced to go virtual in 2020 and 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Next year’s 14th annual fundraiser, on the weekend after Memorial Day, should look much like this year’s: 

▪ Friday, June 2: The Big Slick Celebrity Classic game at Kauffman Stadium before the Kansas City Royals play the Colorado Rockies. Access is included for anyone attending the Royals game.

▪ Saturday, June 3: The Big Slick Party & Show, the main event of the weekend, returns to the T-Mobile Center. 

More details, including ticket prices and celebrity guests, will be unveiled in the spring when tickets go on sale.
