Bob Saget Hosts Comedy Benefit for Scleroderma, Nov.6

Actor and comedian Bob Saget, who recently made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award winning musical The Drowsy Chaperone, hosts The New York Comedy Festival benefit production of "Cool Comedy - Hot Cuisine: An Evening to Benefit The Scleroderma Research Foundation (SRF)" on Tuesday, November 6 at 6PM at Carolines on Broadway (1626 Broadway).

Saget will be joined by event co-host and SRF Board Member, Caryn Zucker and husband, NBC Universal President Jeff Zucker for the flagship fundraiser featuring appearances by world-class comedians including Jimmy Fallon, Gilbert Gottfried, Susie Essman and Robin Williams.

Celebrity chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken of The Food Network's "Too Hot Tamales" will provide the Latin-American themed "hot cuisine."  Proceeds from "Cool Comedy - Hot Cuisine" fund research to find better treatments and a cure for scleroderma.

Tickets for "Cool Comedy - Hot Cuisine" begin at $500, with proceeds going toward the nationally recognized programs of the SRF. For more information, call (800) 441-CURE or visit www.sclerodermaRESEARCH.org.

The Scleroderma Research Foundation is the nation's leading private investor in medical research to find a cure for scleroderma. The word scleroderma literally means "hard skin," but the disease is much more than that - often affecting the internal organs with life-threatening consequences. More than 80% of scleroderma patients are women in the prime of their lives, but the disease also affects men and children across all ages and ethnic boundaries.The SRF was founded in San Francisco in 1987 by scleroderma patient Sharon Monsky.  Monsky lost her battle to the disease in May of 2002 but her legacy lives on through the organization she founded. The Chairman of the organization now, Luke Evnin, Ph.D., is managing partner of MPM Capital, the world's largest dedicated investor in life sciences.
