NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - Creative Cups is the name of the big fundraiser for the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline.

To honor a loved one, to make an artistic statement, or if you are a breast cancer survivor, you can take a bra and turn it into a work of art.

Those works of art will then be sold to raise money for the hotline.

WCBS 880’s Pat Farnack spoke with event organizer Lyn Dobrin about the great variety of entries.

Farnack said you may think you’ve seen it all, but when you read about these entries, you’ll realize you haven’t.

Dobrin said some of the entries have names like My Chemo Golden, Birds of a Feather, Mother of Dragons, Hang In There (which is made of clothes pins), Lady BraGa, and Author Author (which is for writers – it has a tiny little desk and a quill pen).
