Luke JIT EventLa Jolla, CA- San Diego Padres Pitcher Luke Gregerson will be hosting a cars and casino night at Symbolic Motor Car Company located in La Jolla on September 13, 2012 from 6-10 p.m.

SYESA works to coach struggling youth by pairing them with adult role models. They hope that the youth will learn to view their struggles as motivation to become successful adults.

Just in Time for Foster Youth’s mission is to provide foster youths that are in transition with opportunities for self-sufficiency. By providing emergency support, essential resources, and caring personal guidance to these young youth, Just in Time Foster Youth knows that the foster youth they reach will improve their opportunities to advance in the community.

Auction items will be available at the event including: Padres game tickets and player experiences, one of a kind sports memorabilia, elite golf course foursomes, and more surprises to come.

Tickets can be purchased at www.jitfosteryouth.org for $40 which includes select alcoholic beverages, hors d’oeuvres, meet and greets with players and casino games. Exotic cars will be on display, as well as photo and autograph opportunities with players and celebrities. For more information on attending or becoming a sponsor of this event please contact Keith Harris at (949) 336-6380

SYESA (Struggling Youth Equals Successful Adults)!
Struggling Youth Equals Successful Adult’s (SYESA) mission is to coach struggling youth by pairing them with successful adults to overcome obstacles in their lives and empowering them through evolutionary and innovative services that will support them in becoming successful adults. SYESA believes 1. Success is the outcome in which one has established positive, personal, and professional relationships 2. Success is the outcome in which one has mastered the ability to control his or her conflicts 3. Success is the ability to demonstrate respect and self-sufficiency.

Just in time for Foster Youth’s (JIT) mission is to provide transitioning foster youth with opportunities for self-sufficiency through emergency support, essential resources, and caring personal guidance at critical junctures on their path to independence. Society may envision these transitioning youth, now emancipated from the foster care system as boundless, liberated, limitless, and free; the reality facing San Diego’s foster care alumni, however, is anything but. Their reality is fraught with limitation, encumbrances, scarcity and a freedom akin to being from the highest mountain without wings.
