After two years of virtual fundraising, Big Slick Celebrity Weekend roared back, raising a record $3.5 million for the Cancer Center at Children’s Mercy hospital. 

“We’re back,” co-host Paul Rudd greeted an enthusiastic crowd inside the T-Mobile Center Saturday night. 

Boy, were they.

More than 30 celebrities, several with Missouri and Kansas ties, joined Rudd and his fellow hometown hosts — Eric Stonestreet, Rob Riggle and David Koechner — for the annual event. 

After a Friday night softball game at Kauffman Stadium and Saturday’s variety show and auction, Big Slick raised more money than any time in its 13-year history.
