Presiding Officer Norma L. Gonsalves hosted a Breast Cancer Awareness Press Conference, in conjunction with Adelphi University, to promote the University’s Creative Cups Project. The project encourages artistic expression in celebration of the lives of those living with breast cancer and those we have lost to this terrible disease. Participants design and build original works of art using bras, which are exhibited and auctioned at a Gala reception in the spring. All the money raised will go to offset the costs of running the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program.
“I am honored today to join with Adelphi University to promote the Creative Cups Program,” said Presiding Officer Gonsalves. “Creative Cups is a wonderful way to bring awareness to this devastating disease as well as raise funds to help those affected by breast cancer. I wish them the best of luck as we hope to try to find a cure.”
