The fourteenth annual Doodle For Hunger to benefit St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters is slated to take place this Thursday evening, at Pier Sixty in NYC. Founded in 2000, “Doodle for Hunger” is a fun and exciting auction of signed original works of art by artists, entertainers, athletes, politicians, and business celebrities. St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters will host an elegant buffet cocktail party, Doodle preview, and silent auction followed by a live auction! This year’s event will feature musical performances by Gloria Gaynor and Constantine Maroulis. Master of Ceremonies Ernie Anastos will be joined by celebrity auctioneer Tony Lo Bianco.
Contributing to and Attending Doodle For Hunger
Charles Fazzino has been contributing doodles and artwork to this event for many years. (See his 2009 & 2011 doodles!) Below is a sneak preview of this year’s contribution.

“Father Francis, Joe Sano, and the St. Francis Food Pantries have given a helping hand to thousands of New Yorkers in need,” said Charles Fazzino. “I’m proud to support their efforts. I’ve even been able to enhance my own art collection by bidding on doodles at the auction. They truly put together a wonderful collection of celebrity art. It’s a fun event and very worthwhile. I urge you to attend if you can. You’ll never forget it.”
