YANA hosts a winter gala, a summer cycling event, a spring and fall children’s consignment sale, a Christmas campaign and a special initiative through the schools. Each year, there are also many events led by community members in support of local families. We are incredibly grateful for the energy and dedication behind these fundraisers and for everyone who contributes and participates! Beyond raising funds, we aim to raise community awareness, engage community spirit and celebrate all of the love that surrounds YANA.
