The cosmetic industry turned out in droves for the 28th annual DreamBall, held at Cipriani 42nd Street on September 27.

Organized by the American Cancer Society and the Personal Care Products Council Foundation—and founded by Cosmetic World’s own John Ledes—this year’s event honored Hearst Magazines’ Michael Clinton and L’Oréal’s Carol Hamilton. A whopping $2.4 million— and growing—was raised for the Look Good Feel Better program, which helps cancer fighters with the appearance-related side effects of their treatment.

Clinton was introduced by the newly-anointed editor of Cosmopolitan, Joanna Coles, while Hamilton was introduced by L’Oréal spokesmodel Milla Jovovich and Dr. Peter Dottino.

Hosted by news anchor Sade Baderinwa, this year’s DreamBall was the first to honor a Survivor DreamTeam: Giorgio Armani makeup maestro Tim Quinn and Francine Crane, Clinton’s executive assistant of over 26 years—both of whom shared their poignant battles with the disease.

The 2nd annual DreamBall After Dark event followed the dinner ceremony, with a massive turnout of over 280 attendees.
