The Thirteenth Annual "Doodle for Hunger" Celebrity Art Auction was held on Thursday, December 10, 2012, to benefit St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters at Pier Sixty/Chelsea Piers in New York City. The event was presented once again by Margo and John Catsimatidis, and hosted by Fox 5 News Anchor, Ernie Anastos. The evening featured a tribute to the late sports artist and faithful "Doodler" LeRoy Neiman. A special gift created by pop artist Charles Fazzino commemorating LeRoy's 12 years of "Doodles" was presented to his wife Janet Neiman. Guest of Honor Tony Danza, actor and author, received the Francis Award for his commitment to helping the needy. Colorful and original signed works of art, or "Doodles," created by celebrities such as John Travolta, Donald Trump, Peter Max, LeRoy Neiman, Mariano Rivera, Sir Paul McCartney, Archbishop Timothy Dolan, Betty White, Mort Kunstler, and many more were auctioned off during the event. Celebrated Auctioneer Kathleen Guzman, Managing Director of Heritage Auctions New York was assisted by our Celebrity Auctioneer, actor Tony Lo Bianco. Over 700 guests enjoyed a cocktail party, Doodle preview, silent auction and live auctions. It was a wonderful evening that raised over $600,000 in support of St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters - which serves over 10,000 poor families in the New York area each week.
