This unforgettable night honoring Bob raised more than $1.3 MILLION for research!

Thanks to everyone in the room, and to all those who supported the event from afar, the event raised more than $1.3 Million to fund the most promising scleroderma research so we can one day achieve Bob’s dream of ending this disease. Bob’s presence can never be replaced, but we will hold him in our hearts while we remain laser-focused on finding a cure.

Those wishing to join us in paying tribute to Bob Saget can still make a gift in his honor. All donations will make a direct impact to accelerate the pace of research, and all gifts will be matched (up to $1.5M).


Without the help of all of these incredible people, there would be no Cool Comedy • Hot Cuisine this year. Thank you for coming together to honor Bob Saget & his vision to find a cure.

Hosted by: Jeff Ross, John Mayer, Jimmy Kimmel

Event Co-Chairs:  John MayerKelly RizzoJeff Ross, and SRF Board Member, Susan Feniger

Featuring: Regina Hall (SRF Board Member), Howie Mandel, Joel McHale, Kevin Nealon, John Stamos, Mike Binder, and a surprise appearance from Dave Chappelle with Bill Burr

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 $25 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.
