The class of newcomers at Kansas City’s annual Big Slick fundraiser for Children’s Mercy next month will include “Wagon Wheel” singer Darius Rucker, organizers said Monday in the first wave of celebrity guests to be announced in the coming days. 

In addition to Rucker, who gained fame with Hootie & the Blowfish, comedian Tim Heidecker from the Showtime comedy “Moonbase 8” will also participate for the first time. 

Big Slick is fan candy, bringing a big slate of celebrities to Kansas City every year. Other names announced Monday are Big Slick veterans: hot wings aficionado and interviewer extraordinaire Sean Evans, host of YouTube’s “Hot Ones”; Kevin Rahm (“Madam Secretary,” “Lethal Weapon,” “Mad Men”); and Irish actor/comedian Aisling Bea, who starred with Big Slick host Paul Rudd in the Netflix series “Living With Yourself.”

Events include the Big Slick Celebrity Classic softball game at Kauffman Stadium on Friday, June 2, and the Big Slick Party & Show at T-Mobile Center on Saturday, June 3.
