Bulldogs are a loveable lot. So much so that local mother and daughter entrepreneurs Cindy, Laura and Natalie Massari helped raise funds to benefit The Long Island Buildog Rescue .

The event, which garnered more than $50K in funds, was part of the organization's annual “Beth Stern and Friends Bash for the Bulldogs" held at the Kimmel Center for University Life in Manhattan Monday, Dec. 4. Also on hand: Reality star and wife of Ice T, Coco Austin Baby Chanel and -- naturally -- her bulldog Maximus. The event was spearheaded by Entertainment Journalist Jill Rappaport.

The Massari's -- Laura lives in Mount Kisco, Cindy in Katonah and Natalie divides her time between NYC and Katonah -- donated The Flip Flop Bitch tote and a custom pet painting by Lala’s Pet Portraits to their silent auction as well as a book they contributed to called "Passionistas: Tips Tales & Tweetables from Women Pursuing their Dreams."

Laura surprised Coco with a painting of Maximus which was later used as an example during the auction to raise more funds. One painting went for $600 and upon completion, Ice T and Coco will both sign it. Coco also bid $600 on a second painting for her mom’s bulldog.
