Thank Yous

We’d like to acknowledge Fall River Logging Ltd for their charitableness. They held their annual golf tourney and donations were generously given to YANA. Thank you Fall River Logging!

YANA would like to give a shout out to the City of Courtenay’s Canada Day Committee for all their amazing work in creating a wonderful day for Comox Valley citizens on July 1st. It was a perfectly hot day for the local celebrity dunk tank, and variety show. All the “cool” proceeds were donated to YANA. Woo Hoo!

Pacific Playgrounds held their annual Summer Kickoff Event with an array of fun things to do: Tasting Tent, Hot Dog BBQ, face painting and craft tent. All donation proceeds were given to YANA and we are sooooooo grateful. Thank you Pacific Playgrounds! Summertime fun!

Big cheers to GP Vanier’s Leadership program.  These students are leading their way into all of our hearts here at YANA!  Thank you for your fundraising!                            

Looks like the sweet students at Ecole Puntledge Elementary School can’t get enough of baking and YANA couldn’t be more pleased! This other group of kidlets held another bake sale with the proceeds directed towards YANA. Thank you, students, for working hard to make a difference in your community!

Shout out to Max Oudendag of the BC Seafood Festival for raising funds and awareness for YANA during their recent Caesar Competition.  We’d also love to acknowledge the generosity of Match Eatery, for matching the donation! Long live the Caesar!

Domo Arigato to Mac Newton of Toshikan Karate and his amazing students for fundraising for YANA.  They performed 108 Kata (complex karate moves) which is physically demanding and can take about 3 hours to complete.  We’d also like to acknowledge Arrow Gonsalves of House of Now for her contribution to the 108 Kata Event.

YANA sends out a big hug to Emma Greene, of Hair by Emma.  She created a beautiful, bountiful raffle basket of goodies with help from friends.  She raffled it off at her business and donated the proceeds to YANA. We are touched by your thoughtfulness, thank you!

10 yr old Ellie has a huge heart!  In lieu of birthday gifts, she asks for donations to a variety of local organizations.  YANA has been fortunate enough to receive her donation twice now. Thank you, Ellie, for keeping us in mind and helping Comox Valley families!


Thank you to the students in the GP Vanier Interact Club for their generous donation to YANA. These amazing kids fundraise throughout the year to support local charities. These are the leaders of tomorrow and YANA feels they’re already making a huge difference in the lives of our local families and kids!
