Celebrity Art Auction
Doodle for Hunger is the brainchild of Executive Director Joe Sano. He has spent years cultivating relationships with corporations and celebrities alike, collecting hundreds, if not, thousands of original autographed drawings. That’s what makes the Doodle for Hunger so incredibly unique. Nowhere else in the country will you find an auction containing so many original works by celebrities. The auction will include original drawings by Lady Gaga, Cybill Shepard, Cardinal Dolan, John Travolta, Tom Hanks, Donald Trump, Yoko Ono, Penny Marshall, and so many others. Of course, Charles Fazzino will also be adding his annual Doodle to the collection:
