But the celebration doesn’t end there! After their annual fundraising gala had to be
cancelled due to the pandemic, the organization quickly pivoted to an online fundraising
event – the Virtual Experiences Fundraiser. The campaign invites the community to help
YES celebrate 25 years of community service in Quebec by treating themselves to a
gift! YES has partnered with local businesses to offer lockdown-friendly online classes,
with all proceeds going to YES. With a range of great experiences to choose from, from
fitness and wellness classes, cooking and bartending workshops, professional
development options, and more, there’s something for everyone.
