Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine A Virtual Experience Benefitting the Scleroderma Research Foundation - Sunday, October 17 - 5:00PM (PST) | 8:00PM (EST)

Thank you for an incredible Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine 2021.

 

Check back this winter for information about Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine 2022, an in-person event!

Thank you to SRF board members Bob Saget and Susan Feniger for hosting an incredible evening of laughter and inspiration, all to find a cure for scleroderma.

And, words cannot express just how grateful we are to the brilliant comedians, musicians, and actors who generously lent their time and talents to appear on the broadcast… all to help us find a cure:

Anthony Anderson, Bill Burr, Adam Duritz and Counting Crows, Ben Folds, Nikki Glaser, Whoopi Goldberg, Josh Groban, Regina Hall (SRF board member), Ken Jeong, Jimmy Kimmel, Heidi Klum, Loni Love, Joel McHale, Howie Mandel, Marc Maron, Ms. Pat, John Rzeznik of the Goo Goo Dolls, Jeff Ross, and Jake Tapper.

Whether you watched, shared on social media, made a donation, became a sponsor, participated in the auction, or connected with a participating restaurant, you made the evening a success. We are continuously inspired by the generous response from you, our scleroderma community. Together, we reached a global audience and raised $700,000—all directed towards vital scleroderma research. Thank you!

About CCHC

Since its inception in 1987, Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine (CCHC) has become the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s (SRF’s) signature fundraising event, raising more than $25 million to-date to fund the most promising scleroderma research.

Hosted by Bob Saget and Susan Feniger, some of the world’s greatest comedians and performing artists donate their time and talents to support the SRF’s innovative research programs and help raise awareness about this rare autoimmune disease.

All funds raised directly support our research and patient education programs. The SRF is singularly focused on finding a cure, which is why we’ve invested more money in scleroderma research than any other nonprofit on earth.
