Absinthe’s The Gazillionaire hosted an exclusive live auction with packages including a Napa Valley adventure and in-home Top Chef Masters dinners, with all donations going toward Scleroderma Research Foundation (SRF). Comedian Bob Saget entertained guests with a musical standup routine and an energetic performance by hot pop rock band Neon Trees concluded the night.

SRF Board Member and event Chairman Saville Kellner thanked guests for attending and supporting the event and foundation saying, “Scleroderma can kiss my butt if it thinks we are going anywhere without a fight, and with your help and generosity, that fight continues tonight… Thank you all for so much for trying to help us find a cure for this disease, for giving us hope and for changing lives.”

Due to the generous donations during the silent and live auction, the Scleroderma Research Foundation raised more than $560,000 to go toward funding research to find a cure for this debilitating disease.
