BOB SAGET, BEN FOLDS ALONG WITH TOP CHEF MASTERS AND A SURPRISE HEADLINING COMEDIAN BRING COOL COMEDY – HOT CUISINE TO LAS VEGAS ON JUNE 5
 
Bob Saget to host an evening of cool comedy, live music by Ben Folds and hot cuisine by celebrity chefs Susan Feniger, Mary Sue Milliken and Rick Moonen to benefit scleroderma research
 
In its 26th year, Cool Comedy – Hot Cuisine (CCHC) comes to Las Vegas for the first time, bringing the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s (SRF) signature fundraiser event to the House of Blues inside Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino. On Thursday, June 5, comedian and SRF Board Member Bob Saget will host an evening of comedy, live music with special guest Ben Folds and exquisite cuisine, prepared by celebrated Vegas chefs and Top Chef Masters personalities Susan Feniger, Mary Sue Milliken and Rick Moonen.
 
Bringing this event to Las Vegas from its traditional entertainment and culinary capitals of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, the SRF will host its signature fundraiser event where celebrity chefs, comedians, and musical guests come together for a night of entertainment to raise funds and spread awareness for scleroderma. The disease means “hard skin”, often attacking the lungs, kidneys, and gastrointestinal tract with life-threatening consequences. The event supports scleroderma research at premier institutions such as Harvard, Johns Hopkins, Stanford University and UCSF. 
 
To complement the entertainment, the event will also include a cocktail reception, as well as four-course dinner experience prepared by Border Grill Co-Chef/Owners Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger, also a founding SRF Board Member; and Rick Moonen of rm seafood and Rx Boiler Room in the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, for guests to enjoy throughout the evening. 
 
“There are many things I am proud of in my professional life, but this Foundation that I started with my best friend and college roommate, is a high point; we are making a difference in the lives of patients who suffer from scleroderma,” says Feniger. “This event that Mary Sue and I dreamed up brings together some of our favorite things: delicious food, great wine, laughter and the opportunity to give back.”  
 
The Too Hot Tamales share this commitment to “give back” with fellow Top Chef Master Rick Moonen who says of the event, “A dear friend was recently diagnosed with scleroderma so, to collaborate with other passionate culinarians for this important cause is not just an honor, but a priority for me to contribute in any way I can.”
 
To reserve a table for Cool Comedy – Hot Cuisine and learn more about this lifesaving research-funding event, guests can call 1-800-441-2873 from 9 am – 5 pm, Monday through Friday, or visit www.srfcure.org.
