KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -- The 10th annual Big Slick weekend to benefit the Cancer Center at Children’s Mercy Hospital is in just a couple weeks.

Each year, the annual charity VIP Party and Shows is the big money-making event. Having the event at the Sprint Center this year will allow for more Kansas Citians to have the opportunity to attend.

In years past, about 1,500 tickets were available at the Midland, which quickly sold out.

The VIP Show will be hosted by the infamous Big Slick hosts Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, David Koechner and Eric Stonestreet.

The celebrity guest list changes year-to-year. KCTV5 News exclusively announced the next round of celebrities Tuesday morning. This year, David cook, Kevin Rahm and Martin Starr are among those set to appear.

In addition to location, organizers are also hinting at a ‘more music, more comedy’ change in Saturday night’s format.

Tickets for the Saturdays Party & Show start at $79 for standard lower level and go up to $200 for premium seats with open bar.

Premium seats are already sold out, but you can still purchase tickets.

The VIP show is in addition to the celebrity softball game and bowling tournament, that is also played that second weekend in June.

So far over the years, Big Slick has raised over $8 million for Children’s Mercy Hospital.

Over the next couple weeks, we’ll hear more about which celebrities are coming to town.
