Gala raises funds and awareness for foster youth


Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT) held its annual gala benefit, Walk the Talk, on March 22 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla at Aventine. The evening featured “California comfort food” stations, a live auction, and a performance by country music star Jimmy Wayne, who shared his history with foster care.

Philanthropists Stephen and Lynne Doyle were honored for their work with former foster youth.

JIT engages a caring community to help transitioning foster youth, ages 18-26, achieve self-sufficiency and well-being. Visit
