Former WHDH-TV meteorologist Dylan Dreyer, who’s now on the weekend edition of NBC’s “Today,” was back in town to emcee the 16th annual High Hopes Gala for Joslin Diabetes Center at the Westin Copley Place on Saturday night. Doug Melton, Xander University Professor at Harvard University, picked up the night’s Global Achievement Award, while the Spotlight on Hope Award went to 13-year-old Lilly Branka, who was diagnosed with diabetes at 3 and has since educated others about living with the disease. Chairs of the black-tie event were Sara and CJ Floros.
