YANA Christmas Crackers

Saturday, November 12, 2022 – Saturday, December 31, 2022

For almost twenty years, YANA has welcomed the holiday season by making and selling Christmas Crackers in support of local children and families.

5,000 crackers have been lovingly handcrafted by volunteers and filled with the usual delights. 50 crackers have special prizes, including one with an extra special grand prize!

Buying YANA Christmas Crackers

As of December 9, 2021, Crackers are SOLD OUT at ALL locations!

A huge congratulations to our grand-prize winner this year, Sandra Hickman, who snapped the winning crackers over the holiday.Sandra and her family exchanged gifts of impact toward a local charity instead of presents this holiday. Sandra’s came with the gift of support for Comox Valley families, AND a shiny new set of diamond rings!

Thank you to YANA’s anonymous sponsor whose generosity allowed 100% of every sale to be directed to accommodation and travel funding support for YANA families, and to prize donors Mark the Gold Guy and Tim from Simply Timeless for their neverending sparkly support! Huge gratitude as well to all volunteers, retail location staff, and Cracker purchasers in the Comox Valley and beyond for making this fundraiser a huge success again this year!
