NEW YORK (WABC) -- There's a little over a week to get in applications for the third annual NYC Imagine Awards.
The event shines a spotlight on the nonprofit sector in the five boroughs.
Each winner goes home with $5,000 to continue their mission.
The founder of the awards says the ceremony fills a gap of gratitude in the city.
"There really should be a night that spotlights the nonprofit sector and there seems to be awards for absolutely everything else and there were no awards for a sector that selflessly gives on a daily basis," said Kenneth Cereni.
The awards started 11 years ago on Long Island. The deadline for the 2023 applications is May 8. Click here for more.
The ceremony will take place in October.
