By L. Stolpman in Arts & Entertainment on Apr 13, 2009 4:40PM

cshmancer.jpg Fran Drescher (most memorably from The Nanny) will be honored at Carnivale on Tuesday, May 5 and all proceeds from the evening will benefit Cancern Schmancer, Drescher's foundation dedicated to ensuring early diagnosis in women with cancer. Drescher battled cancer and continues the fight through her Foundation. If you are unable to attend this event for any reason but would like to donate, please click here. At the event will be lots of food and drink and, if you take out the big guns, dinner with Fran, herself. Tickets available here.
