Big Slick Celebrity Poker Tournament

This weekend, Angela will attend the Big Slick Celebrity Poker Tournament in Kansas City. The tournament will benefit Children’s Mercy Hospital Cancer Center whose mission is to help improve the physical and emotional well being of children with cancer and their families.

Funny guys Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis, who grew up blocks from each other in Johnson County, return home this weekend for a fourth year as hosts of Big Slick. The fundraiser includes an all-day poker tournament Saturday at Harrah’s North Kansas City casino and a party and auction that night at the Midland theater.

Get ready for star sightings. Celebs announced so far: Sudeikis’ fiancee, Olivia Wilde (“House”), Wilmer Valderrama (“That ’70s Show”), Damon Wayans Jr. (ABC’s “Happy Endings”), Kevin Pollak (“A Few Good Men”), Sarah Chalke (“Scrubs,” ABC’s “How to Live With Your Parents (for the Rest of Your Life”), Angela Kinsey (“The Office”), Will Forte (NBC’s “SNL”), James Marsden (“X-Men,” “The Notebook”), Johnny Knoxville (“Jackass”), J.K. Simmons (“The Closer,” “Juno”), Jon Glaser (NBC’s “Parks and Recreation”).

There will also be an online auction:

The online auction starts Tuesday at bigslickkc.org. Items include an autographed Jon Stewart photo; the board game “Clue: ‘The Office’ Edition” signed by the sitcom’s cast; a jersey signed by former NFL player Michael Strahan (“Live With Kelly and Michael”); and a Sporting KC jersey signed by players, along with two game tickets. – Source
