KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Four years ago Kansas City area natives Rob Riggle, Paul Rudd and Jason Sudekis started the Big Slick Poker Tournament. To date they've helped raise $1.4 million for the cancer center at Children's Mercy Hospital.

This year's event is sold out, however there's an added twist to the campaign. People can get involved and donate to the Crowdrise fundraising campaign to support the cause, earn limited-edition Big Slick gear from Charlie Hustle and fuel some friendly competition by donating to one of the five host teams. No matter who comes out on top, it’s the kids at Children’s Mercy who win.
