KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Actors Paul Rudd, Rob Riggle and Jason Sudeikis are playing cards in Kansas City for a good cause. They'll be attending this weekend's 4th Annual Big Slick Celebrity Poker Tournament and Party to benefit the Cancer Center at Children's Mercy Hospital. Last year's event raised more than $500,000. The actors also will get some time Friday morning with a small group of Children's Mercy patients. Other celebrities scheduled to attend this year include Wilmer Valderrama of "That 70's Show"; Angela Kinsey of "The Office"; Damon Wayans, Jr. of "Happy Endings"; Sarah Chalke of "Scrubs"; Kevin Pollack of "A Few Good Men" and Olivia Wilde of "House, M.D." Tickets for the event start at $75.
