On November 3, 2018, nearly 500 guests attended Joslin Diabetes Center’s 19th annual black-tie High Hopes Gala at The Castle at Park Plaza. Guests had the opportunity to mingle with former New England Patriots cornerback and Class of 2018 Pro Football Hall of Fame Finalist Ty Law. The evening was emceed by Kristy Lee of NBC 10 Boston and honored the Aiello and Beetham families of the Beetham Eye Institute for their generations of work in treating and reversing diabetes-related blindness. Emma and Sarah Sabourin, young Joslin patients, ages 9 and 13, and diabetes advocates, received this year’s Spotlight on Hope award, and Casey McNamara was named Joslin’s 2019 Merritt Levitan Youth Ambassador. As ambassador, the 18-year-old high school senior will take an active role in enhancing diabetes awareness. The event raised more than $1.3 million for Joslin’s High Hopes Fund which directly supports the Center’s greatest efforts to identify breakthrough advancements in diabetes research and in providing world-renowned clinical care.
