On Thursday November 2, 2017, St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters held its 18th Annual "Doodle For Hunger®" 2017 Celebrity Art Auction and Gala at Pier Sixty, Chelsea Piers.

A great amount of colorful and original signed works of art, or as we like to call them "Doodles," created by actors, artists, sports icons, celebrities, politicians and more were auctioned off for charity.

The Presenting Sponsors of the evening were Margo and John Catsimatidis who welcomed actor/entertainer Joseph Piscopo as the Guest of Honor. Tony Orlando, musical icon ("Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ol' Oak Tree") who thrilled the crowd with his classic hits.

Hosted by 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 professional auctioneer Amy Papola and actor Tony Lo Bianco.

The evening was attended by hundreds of guests who helped to raise thousands of dollars to benefit the clients who depend on St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters. Thank you to everyone who contributed to another amazing event!
