The 2017 JDRF Dream Gala, held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel at the Arch, raised over $700,000 on Saturday night. 

KMOV's Courtney Bryant served as emcee and KMOV's Russell Kinsaul was the 2017 honoree. 

JDRF is the leading global organization funding research for Type 1 diabetes. Each year, 40,000 Americans are diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, and there is no cure for the disease. 

The JDRF Dream Gala in St. Louis has raised more than $10 million since its inception.
