NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — This week, New Yorkers will dress to impress all in the name of charity.

Thursday is the annual DREAMS in the City event in New York City.

The gala raises money for the Diabetes Research Institute. This year’s “Dare to Dream” honoree is entrepreneur and diabetes advocate Jennifer Ross, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes at 6-years-old.
