Every year in Kansas City, a group of actors/comedians from KC put on a charity even for the local hospital. Paul Rudd, Rob Riggle, Eric Stonestreet, Jason Sudekis, and Dave Koechner sp (Champ from Anchorman)

They do a celebrity softball game before a royals game, a bowling tournament and other things.

We have been trying for years, and finally got a pair of tickets to the auction last night.

There were around 40 celebs that showed up and donated items. Weird Al cancelled at last minute, but Al Roker, Adam Devine, Will Forte, Kevin Pollack to name a few http://bigslickkc.org/guests/

They had some cool stuff for auction. A trip to Saturday Night live, Jimmy Fallon, but for the nerds, there were a couple of REALLY cool ones.

Paul Rudd was speaking and a Captain America Sheild came from the ceiling on a cable.  He had a sheild autographed by the cast of Infinity Wars.  All the Avengers and Guardians had signed it. He said that a couple of people had done it, but it's seriously a thing that just about one of a kind.  

The price? It sold for $62,000!

Next was a trip to the Ant Man red carpet premiere in LA.  You got to go to the movie, walk the red carpet with Paul Rudd, and after the movie go to the after party with all of the celebs.  How great would that be?

The bidding was up to $45k, then someone popped in with a bid of $60k to win.  After that ended DAVID DASTMALCHIAN, who is in AntMan as well stepped up and said he also had a pair of tickets to give away, so they gave them to the next highest bidder for $45k.  

They say money can't buy happiness, but I'd be happy as hell to go to that party.

We were in the nosebleed, poor people section of the theater, but it was really fun, and they raised 2 million for the hospital.  I'm not sure if I'll ever try to go again, but it was pretty fun to see at least once.
