Cool Comedy-Hot Cuisine, hosted by comedian Bill Bellamy, returns to Las Vegas on Oct. 13 at the Brooklyn Bowl.

The annual event raises funds for the Scleroderma Research Foundation's innovative research program.

The word scleroderma means “hard skin,” but the disease can also affect internal organs with lethal consequences. In some cases, the joints and muscles are affected, resulting in severe pain and limited mobility. Vascular damage due to scleroderma can result in loss of fingers, toes and entire limbs but the most serious complications involve the lungs and kidneys.

Cool Comedy-Hot Cuisine guests will be treated to a dinner prepared by four of Las Vegas’ Bravo Top Chef Masters, Chefs Rick Moonen, Mary Sue Milliken and Susan Feniger and Hubert Keller. Entertainers from the hit Las Vegas show "Absinthe" will perform for guests as well as noted comedians and special musical guests.

An exclusive live auction hosted by Absinthe stars The Gazillionaire and Penny includes items such as a Napa Valley adventure and in-home Top Chef Masters dinners offers guests a chance to further support the SRF while enjoying unique and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

Tickets for this year’s festivities are on sale at the SRF website. Prices range from $500 to $25,000 for a Platinum level table of 10. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
