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.

This Comox Valley tradition starts in October every year. 5,000 crackers are lovingly handcrafted by volunteers and filled with the usual delights. 50 crackers have special prizes, including one with a grand prize: a beautiful diamond ring valued at $3,370! Thank you to Mark the Gold Guy for this generous donation and to Tim Haley from Simply Timeless for donating the appraisal.

We are incredibly grateful for our sponsors Paul Ardron and Kirk Campbell of IG Wealth Management.  Their generous support allows 100% of the proceeds of this fundraiser to be directed to accommodation and travel funding support for YANA families.
