The 2019 Big Slick Celebrity Weekend charity fundraiser for Children's Mercy will take place at several locations across Kansas City the weekend of June 7-8th, and Rush's Alex Lifeson will be one of the many celebrity participants. The fundraiser started nine years ago as a poker tournament organized by actors Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudeikis, and has since grew into a multi-day event that includes a live auction, celebrity softball game, bowling tournament, VIP party and live show. The event has raised over $8 million for Children's Mercy Hospital since its inception. For all the details including ticket information, visit the website at
