Doodle For Hunger Auction Featuring Steve Garvey

Auctions aren't just for personal gain.  Sometimes, you can bid on something that supports a good cause.

Currently at Heritage is the "Doodle for Hunger" auction featuring famous sports athletes artwork in support of St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters.  Per their mission statement:
St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters is established to alleviate the physical and emotional hunger of the poor and needy in a dignified and supportive manner. The St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters takes a comprehensive approach in providing and supporting services that eradicate not only hunger, but the structural causes of hunger. Working together with the staff and volunteers at various locations to promote emotional and physical well-being through programs sponsored by banks, hospitals, social service providers, and the corporate community, the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters raises awareness of the needs within the community and forges new relationships.

In addition to feeding the hungry, the St. Francis Food Pantries and Shelters works to eliminate hunger and its underlying causes by providing literacy programs, counseling for persons with addictions, support for victims of domestic violence, and training for those who help eradicate the various structural causes of hunger; each location has customized its program according to the needs of the local community.
Go here to see everything for sale.  You can find drawings from the likes of Jerry Cooney, Bob Cousy, Larry Doby, Scott Erickson, Jennie Finch, Bob Gibson, Rosey Grier, Mario Lemieux, Joe Theisman and Jamaal Wilkes (the former Laker).  Below are a couple more that I wanted to share.

Sugar Ray Leonard

Sugar Ray decided to share a great life lesson.  Check out what he had to say below.

"Life is Boxing" and "Boxing is Life"
After a knockdown in boxing, you have "only" 10 seconds! To get up!
A knockdown in life, there's no count,.  But, you must always get back up!  Always!
