YANA Dinner/Auction raises $58,000

The Comox Valley raised $58,000 at the 2013 YANA Dinner and Auction.

YANA AUCTION CO-ORDINATORS were executive director Anita Brassard (in car)

The Comox Valley community came together on March 8, raising $58,000 at the 2013 YANA Dinner and Auction.

The love for this local charity was evident from the donations received, the tickets that sold out in four hours, the sponsors, the volunteers and the generous bidders at the live and silent auctions.

This is truly a heart warming gala evening anticipated with excitement from year to year. Tremendous appreciation goes to all who contributed to this extremely successful event.

Dave Stevens was once again at the microphone orchestrating the bidding for the live auction.

Karen McKinnon of McKinnon Photography presented an emotional slideshow featuring Linden Harris, a beautiful four-year-old girl who was diagnosed with leukemia in November. The presentation showed what a treatment day is like for Linden, the strength of her family and the power of community support.

Since 1986, You Are Not Alone has been helping local families leaving our community for medical treatment for their children or during high-risk pregnancies.

YANA not only provides families with funding and accommodation but also shows them that they live in a caring community that strives to keep their family together so they can provide the love and support their child needs.
