On Monday, December 4th, Beth Stern and friends, including Coco Austin and her daughter Chanel Nicole, and animal advocate and award-winning author Jill Rappaport, hosted the Bash for the Bulldogs to benefit Long Island Bulldog Rescue at NYU Kimmel Center’s Rosenthal Pavilion in New York City.
More than 200 guests and around a dozen dogs came out to support the organization. All proceeds from the event go to help, heal and home abandoned, abused, neglected and injured or ill English Bulldogs.
The evening included delicious food by Top of the Square, wine donated by Chatham Imports, and a live and silent auction, where both Stern and Austin took terms at the podium, with items including signed guitars by Bruce Springsteen and Taylor Swift, a Howard Stern signed bulldog statue, and a celebrity chef private in-home dinner for four.
