The History and Impact of 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 $29 million to fund the most promising scleroderma research.
Hosted for many years by SRF Board Members Bob Saget and Susan Feniger, some of the world’s greatest comedians and performing artists donated their time and talents to support the SRF’s innovative research programs and help raise awareness about this rare autoimmune disease. Though devastated by the loss of Bob Saget in 2022, the SRF, in collaboration with his family and friends, will continue this event in the hopes of achieving Bob’s dream of ending scleroderma.
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.
