Pat Battle To Host Creative Cups On March 16

Pat Battle greets Joan Leondis, a Garden City resident who is a Creative Cups artist and a volunteer with the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program.

NBC’s Pat Battle is hosting Creative Cups 2017, a popular art fundraiser held at Adelphi University in Garden City to benefit the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program on the evening of Thursday, March 16, from 7 to 9 p.m. This is the third time that Battle, a breast cancer survivor and the co-anchor for NBC 4 New York’s Weekend Today in New York, is hosting the event.

“Pat is such a warm and welcoming person,” said Hillary Rutter, the executive director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program, “and people love having the opportunity to personally interact with her as they decide which Creative Cups to bid on.”

Tamsen Fadal’s creation “The Cabaret Cup” will be auctioned on March 16.

Creative Cups are ordinary bras that have been transformed into works of art and auctioned to raise funds for the hotline. Among the 137 bras offered that evening is a Creative Cup made by another news anchor—Tamsen Fadal, WPIX news anchor. Fadal, with Bryant Hoven, the Metropolitan Opera costume shop’s head tailor, designed The Cabaret Cup, in memory of Fadal’s mother, a passionate theatergoer who lost her battle with breast cancer at age 50.

“Each time we do Creative Cups we are amazed at the creativity of the contributors and the many who show their support for our work by attending the event and purchasing the bras,” said Hillary Rutter, the executive director of the Adelphi Breast Cancer Program.

Wine and desserts will be served at the gala auction. To date, top sponsors include Goldman Sachs Gives, The Leviton Foundation Inc. and Digital Graphic Imagery. Visit or call 516-877-4320 for tickets and sponsorship.
