| March 8, 2019 | 0 Comments

Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) will hold its 6th Annual Walk the Talk fundraising celebration from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m., Saturday, March 23, 2019 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine, to raise awareness and resources for transition age foster youth in San Diego County. The theme of this year’s event is “Community of Heroes,” and will honor five women for their heroic work with JIT.

The super celebration will focus on connecting and engaging more than 350 prominent members of the community to JIT’s mission and to the young men and women that they serve. As an integral component of the event, at least 75 youth who are transitioning out of the foster care system will lead the program and share their stories. The festive yet relaxed evening will feature gourmet cuisine, engaging and inspirational entertainment related to JIT’s mission, a unique live auction that includes luxury getaways and much more.

This year’s honorees include Just in Time co-founder Jeanette Day, who is named as JIT’s “Wonder Woman,” as well as Susanne Livingston, Kevan Lyon, Joanne Marks and Kathy Roberts, who are named as “The Fantastic Four.” These five women have played significant roles in supporting JIT and the services provided to transition age foster youth. These honorees have successfully made an impact in the lives of foster youth and helped to change the world one youth at a time.
