YANA dinner auction in March

YANA’s popular annual dinner auction happens March 8.

Tickets for this fabulous event always sell out quickly. To be fair to all those who are interested in attending, there have been no pre-sales.

YANA will release all the tickets on Jan. 15 at their office at 495 Fitzgerald Ave. in Courtenay. Although phone (250-871-0343) and e-mail (info@yanacomoxvalley.com) requests will be accepted, seats can be confirmed only once payment is received.

YANA is a local charity with an important job — to keep families together during situations where a child or an expecting mother requires medical attention outside the Comox Valley. YANA helps by providing funding to families for their time away from home and by providing free access to accommodation. This assistance allows families to focus on nurturing their child.

YANA is a grassroots organization founded by Sandra Williams over 25 years ago.

As our community has grown so has the need for YANA's services. The charity must raise over $200,000 per year to continue to support families.

This dinner and auction is YANA’s major annual fundraiser. You are invited to be a part of the heartfelt giving that is required to host such an event.

Here's how you can be involved (contact the YANA office):

• Purchase a $50 ticket to attend the event. Don't delay; tickets sell out quickly.

• Donate an item or service for the auction.

• Get a group of friends, teammates or colleagues together to purchase an item for the auction and donate it in the group's name.

• Sponsor a table at the event for $150 and in exchange have your marketing image displayed on the scrolling big screen and your business information on a tent card at one of the tables.

The Comox Valley has embraced the concept that it takes a community to raise a child. Help YANA keep the spirit alive!

You will know that your gift will be valued, it will make a difference, and it will show the community that you care.
