It was a full house — or, more accurately, a Full House reunion — on the red carpet at the Scleroderma Research Foundation’s Cool Comedy Hot Cuisine event. Held in New York City on December 5, the benefit drew famous guests, including Ashley Olsen and her former TV pops, Bob Saget.
Saget was thrilled to have the support of his friend and former co-star at the event. The recently engaged comedian posted a picture of himself with Olsen and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver host John Oliver, and captioned it with a sweet message that acknowledged his "dear friend:"
The event is dear to Saget's heart. The actor, who lost his sister to Scleroderma, is on the Scleroderma Research Foundation's board of directors. This week's event in New York helped raise $1.2 million, which will help fund research for the life-threatening disease.

Though Olsen and Saget aren't frequently captured together on the red carpet (the last time was in 2015), the two friends stay in close contact. In November, the two members of the fictional Tanner family caught up over dinner in New York City.
