Gaslight Gathering’s 2015 Local Charity partner is Just In Time Foster Youth. An organization dedicated to helping foster youths prepare for life after graduation.

Thanks to the very kind donation by our Guest of Honor, Scott Brodeen, a handful of 16 inch Nautilus Submarines were distributed to Southern California makers and transformed into incredible Steampunk creations that will be on display in the 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Tribute and Maker Room. These creations will be auctioned off to benefit Just In Time Foster Youth on Saturday evening at 6:20pm in the Le Chanicleer Room.

For more information about Just In Time Foster Youth, please click on the image above or stop by the Gaslight table in the Vendor Hall next to the Time Machine.
