Come down to the new Games and Grounds location at 331 Fourth St. from 2-4 p.m. on Christmas Eve for a YANA fundraiser featuring The Figments and other local musicians.

Christmas Eve YANA fundraiser

Figments, with guest Alan Jossul will be playing from 2 - 4 p.m.

Christmas is a special time for many, and YANA is a local charity that provides support to families who need to travel for the medical care of a child, throughout the year.

Keeping this sentiment in mind, local musicians are teaming up with Games and Grounds Coffee House to put on a fundraiser on Christmas Eve day.

The Figments (Tom Walton, Blair Bentley) with guest Alan Jossul will be playing a mix of rock, country and Christmas carols from 2 – 4 p.m.

“I approached Alex a while ago about playing at their new location, and suggested that we do a fundraiser,” said Bentley. “As Christmas has a focus on families, we felt that YANA was a great choice.”

A number of other local musicians have also been invited to come down and sing a tune or two.

“People will be rushing around doing some last-minute shopping.  We want to provide a little break for them… time to grab a warm drink, sit down, enjoy the music and have some fun,” said Alex Greenwood, co-owner of Games and Grounds Coffee House at 331 Fourth St.
