Bob Saget, CCHC 1996

Since its inception in 1986, Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine (CCHC) has become the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s (SRF’s) signature fundraising event, featuring some of the world’s greatest comedians and performing artists – all of whom donate their time and talents to support SRF’s innovative research programs and help raise awareness about this rare autoimmune disease.

For more than 30 years, actor/comedian Bob Saget has hosted this annual event, traditionally held in New York, Los Angeles San Francisco or Las Vegas, where guests have been treated to exceptional cuisine prepared by Bravo TV Top Chef Masters chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken.

Attendees have included generous partners and supporters from the entertainment world and corporate industries, as well as patients, physicians, and many others who have been directly or indirectly affected by scleroderma.

Over the years, this high profile evening has generated more than $45 million to support the work of the Scleroderma Research Foundation and our commitment to finding improved treatments and – one day – a cure for scleroderma.
