On Thursday November 3, 2016, St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters held its 17th Annual "Doodle For Hunger" 2016 Celebrity Art Auction and Gala at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers.

Colorful and original signed works of art, or "Doodles," created by actors, artists, sports icons, politicians and more were auctioned off for charity.

The Presenting Sponsors of the evening were Margo and John Catsimatidis welcomed Academy award winning actress Olympia Dukakis as the Guest of Honor. Performer Tony Danza and his band thrilled the crowd with his nightclub act.

Hosted Ernie Anastos, news anchor of Fox 5 NY, this high profile and highly anticipated occasion included a cocktail party with buffet, "Doodle" preview and Silent and Live Auctions. The Live Auction was led by Kathleen Guzman, Professional Auctioneer from Heritage Auctions and Actor Tony Lo Bianco.
