Posted on

5000 lovingly handcrafted YANA Christmas Crackers are on sale now throughout the Comox Valley. Find prices, retail locations and grand prize info here: https://www.yanacomoxvalley.com/yana-event/christmas-crackers/

We would love to send some toasty warm love to Potter’s Place for holding their Annual Chili Bowl Fundraiser at Market Days. The community benefits by receiving some gorgeous handmade pottery with a dollop of delicious Chili thrown in and all proceeds go to YANA. Win Win!

Appreciation goes out to Brian Norman Band AND community for donating the proceeds of their performance at CV Farmer’s Market to YANA. Much gratitude!

Christmas Cracker Drop-In Sessions Complete

Posted on

HUGE thanks to every volunteer who has come to our drop-in Christmas Cracker crafting sessions and group bookings!

The Christmas Crackers are almost complete, so DROP-IN SESSIONS ARE CANCELLED for the remaining dates (November 1, 4, 6 and 8).

Group bookings will continue, however, once this year’s crackers are done, groups will be asked to assist with preparation tasks (measuring, cutting, packaging etc) for next year’s fundraiser.

For information about prizes and about where to buy YANA Christmas Crackers, please see the Christmas Crackers Event Page

Sincere gratitude to the wonderful people of the Provincial Employees Community Services Fund, who generously donated to YANA. We appreciate you!

It warms our heart when children work so hard to fundraise for Comox Valley families. Thank you to Olivia, age 9, for face painting on Market Day with donations to YANA and to her mother, Jody of Home and Garden Gate, for matching her funds. What fantastic teamwork!

We are always amazed at the creative ways people in the Comox Valley come up with to raise money. We’d love to thank Gina at Courtenay Physiotherapy for making and selling microwaveable bags with proceeds going to YANA.

Sending huge appreciation to Island Motorcycle Company for organizing their 2nd Annual Mountain Meetup. These generous folks gather on Mount Washington to see and test the latest models of motorcycles AND give generously to YANA at their event.

The Komox Men’s Real Baseball League really hit it out of the park with their recent fundraiser. YANA was the fortunate recipient of their charitableness. Thank you guys – we think you’re all batting .400!
