What is Cooking Up a Cure?
There are more than 300,000 Americans suffering from scleroderma, a life-threatening autoimmune disease with no cure and few treatment options. But you can help!
Cooking up a Cure is a fundraising event, combining Chicago's greatest chefs, breweries, wineries, and distilleries to raise money for the Scleroderma Foundation, Greater Chicago Chapter which provides support, education and research to scleroderma patients and their families.

Look for the Cooking Up a Cure logo in the window. (If you prefer to walk, the garage is just a few blocks away from Greenhouse Loft.)
