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.
