YANA Christmas Crackers

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- A breathtaking diamond ring donated by Mark the Gold Guy and appraised by Tim Haley.

We are incredibly grateful to Somers Private Wealth of RBC Dominion Securities for their sponsorship of the 2023 Christmas Crackers! This generous support allows 100% of the proceeds of this fundraiser to be directed to accommodation and travel funding support for YANA families.


These holiday favourites are on sale starting November 12th at retail locations throughout the Comox Valley. They are $5.00 each, cash only, and will be available until they’re sold out. The Crackers typically sell out quickly, so check back regularly for location updates and “Sold Out” notices.
