YANA Big Love Benefit

Friday, February 22, 2019 Florence Filberg Centre, Courtenay

The Big Love Benefit is an annual dinner and auction in celebration of the philanthropy and love that surrounds YANA. This gala fundraiser is filled with fun, friends and community spirit.

The evening begins with the opportunity to visit, purchase a refreshment, and peruse the hundreds of silent auction items that are generously donated by our community. Tria Fine Catering provides a delicious buffet dinner and dessert, followed by a heart-felt photo presentation by McKinnon Photography featuring one of our courageous YANA families. Auctioneer Dave Stevens leads an exciting live auction where guests have the opportunity to bid on amazing packages.
