Proceeds to Benefit Services for Transition Age Foster Youth
San Diego, CA – The San Diego County Public Defender’s Community Outreach Committee will host Casino Royale on Saturday, September 14, 2019, from 7:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m. at the San Diego Museum of Natural History in Balboa Park. Proceeds will benefit Just in Time for Foster Youth (JIT), a nonprofit organization that engages a caring community to help transition age foster youth achieve self-sufficiency and well-being.
The James Bond-themed casino night will feature table games, dancing, live music, a hosted bar, appetizers and more. The event dress code will be formal, and guests are encouraged to wear their best “James Bond-chic” attire. The entertaining evening will benefit JIT services that help end the foster care to prison pipeline, including career guidance, helping youth move into and furnish their first home, providing school supplies for higher education and much more.
“San Diego Public Defender’s Office is ecstatic to announce our partnership with Just in Time for this year’s Casino Night!” said Grant Porter, Vice President of the Outreach Committee. “We’re delighted to be working with an organization dedicated to helping foster youth during their most vulnerable times. Through our partnership, we hope to end the cycle of incarceration that impacts a disproportionate number of foster youth.”
