Carla Agrippino-Gomes to be Honored at Joslin Gala Former North End resident and restaurateur, Carla Agrippino-Gomes, has been a familiar face around Joslin Diabetes Center for the past 23 years with her son, David, who was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes on his first birthday. Because Joslin has played such a vi- tal role in their lives, Gomes feels a strong responsibility to give back to the place that has been a lifeline for her family. Over the past de- cade, she has demonstrated her appreciation through CityFeast  an annual fundraiser she established in 2005 that benefits Joslin's High Hopes Fund. In honor of the ongoing support Joslin receives through fundraisers like CityFeast, Joslin Diabetes Center will recognize Gomes along with others who have supported their life saving care and research as "Com- munity Events Champi- ons" at the upcoming High Hopes Gala, which will be held on Saturday, Novem- ber 22 ad at The Westin Bos- ton Waterfront. "I am so grateful to the Joslin Diabetes Center for their support and am hon- ored to be recognized as one of their Community Events Champions," said Gomes. "Every dollar raised through events like CityFeast gets us closer to the day my son David and millions like him will be free from diabetes and its complications; I hope to make this January's I0 th annual CityFeast the most successful one to date." Gomes' CityFeast attract hundreds of guests each year to some of the most re- nowned North End restau- rants -- including her two restaurants, Antico Forno and Terramia Ristorante - for a five-course meal, wine tasting and exciting auction items that benefit diabetes research. The "Community Events Champions" include compa- nies and individuals, like Gomes, who have a passion and dedication for raising diabetes awareness and funding Joslin's fight against the disease year after year. The money that these local champions raise goes toward improving the lives of more than 29 million Americans living with diabetes. The High Hopes Gala is a fabulous black-tie event that benefits Joslin's High Hopes Fund. The evening, which will be emceed by Dylan Dreyer, Weather Anchor, NBC's Weekend TODAY, will include a lively cocktail re- ception, exciting silent and live auction, live entertain- ment and a chance to win a trip to the 2015 Masters Golf Tournamentl For more information on the High Hopes Gala or to purchase tickets, please contact Meghan Mongeau at 617-309-2512 or at Meghan. mongeau@joslin.harvard.edu.
