The Million Dollar Revival, a benefit for Fran Drescher's Cancer Schmancer Movement organized by non-profit I HEART Inc, is an eclectic evening of live music and comedy true to the era of old-time variety shows taking place on December 13th, 2009 at the historic Million Dollar Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The event promises to be a true Los Angeles-style melting pot of artists one would never imagine gracing the same stage, coming together for one night only in the fight against women’s cancers.
Hosted by Fran Drescher, the event features Jackson Browne, The Bird and the Bee, Olivia Newton-John, Beth Nielsen Chapman, The Wispertown2000, Chris Pierce, Arrica Rose & the …‘s, Charlotte Martin, Caitlin Crosby, Charlyne Yi, Mortified, Stilt World and more! There will be a special VIP party held immediately after the event at 213 Nightlife’s Broadway Bar.
I HEART’s Million Dollar Revival will raise funds for the Cancer Schmancer/Inner Images Fran Van Project. The Fran Vans are a mobile van service that will go directly to the neighborhoods of low income uninsured women throughout Los Angeles and provide them with preventative cancer education and information as well as the opportunity to sign up for local cancer screening tests and free follow-up care. Cancer Survivor, Actress, US Diplomat and Women’s Health Advocate Fran Drescher has dedicated her life to ensuring that all women, rich or poor, young or old, will only be diagnosed with cancer while in Stage 1 when it’s most curable. To this end she has begun the Cancer Schmancer Fran Van Project. In addition to funding the Fran Van Project, this event will also be a celebration of the rejuvenation and revitalization of downtown L.A.
I HEART Inc is an non-profit organization whose ultimate aim is to empower independent artists and their communities by encouraging artists to use the resources at their disposal (their creativity and their fanbase) to help raise money for charitable programs and organizations. In the process of raising awareness and much needed funds they also intend to expose participating artists to new fans as well as fellow artists who are utilizing their creativity to inspire change locally and globally.
