Over 400 attendees, 18 bachelors, and co-hosts Frankie V from JAM’N 95.7 and Landa Plenty, made the 10th Annual Jingle Bell Bachelor Bash at Fluxx Nightclub on December 2nd a San Diego event to remember.
On November 9, 2017, The Junior League of San Diego was excited to partner with Girl Scouts San Diego once again to hold the 2017 Community Partner Breakfast. To show appreciation for the hard work our community partners do, attendees enjoyed a hot breakfast buffet from Corner Bakery, a moving story of success from Youth Spotlight speaker Luciano Castillo, and the always engaging Jerry Troyer speaking about the programming and positive impact of Urban Street Angels and 8West.
New this year, the attendees had an opportunity to provide feedback on the Junior League’s impact on community needs. They also enjoyed connecting with the JLSD TAY Outcomes Taskforce and SPAC committee representatives for personal updates on upcoming projects/legislative action and how to get involved.
In addition to some special thank you gifts courtesy of The LOT and JLSD, each of the 60 attendees took home a reusable tote filled with give-aways and green shirts from UC Health System to recognize National Runaway and Homeless Youth Awareness Month. In support of the work each community partner does to support the Foster youth of San Diego, Adoption World Publishing and Dr. Jamie Schwandt’s also graciously provided each of the 60 attendees with Dr. Schwandt’s new workbook “Succeeding as a Foster Child.”

What is the Junior League’s Solution Summit? – Members of the Junior League of San Diego and community partners continuously working toward improving the lives of Transition-Age Foster Youth (TAY) in San Diego County.
This year’s Solutions Summit, held at the San Diego Central Library on March 22 and 23, focused primarily on establishing potential solutions to solve TAY issues related to 3 issues: (1) pregnancy and prevention, (2) housing, and (3) sexual exploitation. The themes were determined by a steering committee and decided on by Just in Time’s LEAP Council, as this year’s Solutions Summit team hoped to add more of a TAY voice to the event.
Over 60 community partners, each with a TAY connection, participated in this year’s event and lent themselves to the following potential initiatives:
All potential outcomes will be reviewed by the Junior League to determine whether TAY Task Forces will be able to assist in implementing the initiatives.
