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 10:30am Thursday, December 15, 2022, Crackers are SOLD OUT at ALL locations!
Thank you to our 2022 Christmas Crackers sponsor, Somers Private Wealth of RBC Dominion Securities 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!
