Enjoy heavy hors d’oeuvres, samples of chef’s dishes, beer and wine, and will have a chance to purchase a raffle ticket to win a variety of prizes.

Food Fight for Scleroderma is an annual event that raises money for the Scleroderma foundation, a life-threatening, autoimmune disease with no cure.  The research and support that the foundation provides is extremely important to thousands of people living with this disease.  For more information about Scleroderma and the Scleroderma Foundation,  visit www.scleroderma.org.

Food Fight for Scleroderma’s Annual Event was started by two sisters, who learned about the effects of scleroderma when their mother was diagnosed with the disease. “We are excited to continue awareness for this cause and supporting schleroderma patients while providing attendees with a fun culinary experience.”

Tickets for this event are priced at $65 when purchased in advances and $75 when purchased at the door if the supplies last.  For more information about the event and ticket sales, visit www.chicagofoodfight.com.
