The 26-year-old singer participated in Children’s Mercy Hospital’s Big Slick 2019 Celebrity Weekend on Friday, first meeting and greeting patients at the Kansas City hospital. Gomez posed for pics with a handful of fans, who were all smiles as the former Wizards of Waverly Place star chatted and played games with them.
“What a wonderful way to kick off Big Slick weekend!! Thank you to @RobRiggle, Paul Rudd, Jason Sudeikis, @davidkoechner, @ericstonestreet and all of their friends for brightening our kids’ day and raising a ton of money for pediatric research!!” Children’s Mercy wrote on their Instagram alongside a slew of pics from the hospital visit.
Gomez, as well as a handful of other celebrities including Zachary Levi, Katherine McNamara, Cobie Smulders, Ariel Winter, Adam Scott and more, also took the field for a charity softball game to support pediatric cancer research and treatment programs.
