Top Chef’s Cooking up a Cure Against Scleroderma – 10.22
Scleroderma, meaning “hard skin” in Latin is an auto-immune disease that affects 300,000 people in the US, predominately woman. It can be life threatening. This disease causes thickening and tightening of skin, and in severe cases, also hardens internal organs. There is currently no cure for Scleroderma.
Our pal, Cleetus Friedman is chairing a panel of great local chefs to “cook up a cure” to support the Chicago area chapter of the Scleroderma Foundation and promote continued research into a cure for the disease on October 22 at Salvage One. More information about the event can be found at www.cookingupacurechicago.com

The night will consist of a silent and live auction and a generous sampling of food and drinks. All proceeds from the “Cooking Up a Cure” event will support ongoing research and funding for scleroderma.
