KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Big Slick KC fundraiser airs on Saturday night and proceeds from the fundraiser will go to Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Big Slick is hosted by comedians Paul Rudd, Eric Stonestreet, Jason Sudeikis, Rob Riggle and David Koechner. All from the Kansas City area.

The fundraiser is usually a two day event but COVID-19 made the show adjust its plans. Instead, it will be a “virtually talented show” at 7:30pm on Big Slick's website, YouTube and Facebook Page.

They are asking people if they can to donate to hospital to help end childhood cancer.

The show will feature dozens of celebrities and even some Kansas City Chiefs players.

"This year we had to go virtual because it takes about nine months to plan this thing, " co-host of the event Rob Riggle said. "So, we couldn't commit to things. So, we had to do a virtual event this year and that's fine. KC is still showing up and representing. Hopefully we will raise a lot of money this year and then next year fingers crossed, we will be back to a live event."
