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 were lovingly handcrafted by volunteers and filled with the usual delights. 50 crackers had special prizes, including one with a grand prize: a unique 18Kt gold ring designed and crafted by Cavelti valued at $2,835! Thank you to Mark the Gold Guy for this generous donation and to Tim Haley from Simply Timeless for donating the appraisal.

Congratulations to our grand prize winner for 2020 – Jayne W.!  Thank you to Jayne’s daughter Sarah as well for buying crackers, including one VERY special one, at Edible Island this year.

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.
