As a booster club president we are always searching for new, creative ways to generate funds to support our program. Most players and parents are tired of the "run of the mill" approaches such as subscription sales, pancake breakfasts and alike. This year the Fairport Girl's Basketball Booster Club aligned us with YaYa's Yummy's and couldn't be happier with that choice.
In slightly over two weeks, our basketball program cleared over $700 in YaYa's sales that was deposited into our account...we far exceeded our target of $500 and due to our overall success will not have to do another fundraiser this year. Yaya's Yummys staff was excellent to work with and provided flexibility in the ordering process which made for satisfied customers. The accuracy with the orders was extraordinary which made the overall process for myself in handling over 100 orders a breeze.
I certainly recommend any and all athletic or scholastic groups looking to raise funds to work with Yaya's Yummys. Their very generous financial plan for fund raising is unmatched and allows programs to earn the much needed dollars to support their respective programs. Not only was it a pleasure to work with them, the products are fantastic and had numerous compliments from our customers!

I have been in the fundraising chair for the Friends of Pittsford Cheer Club for the past four years. We recently decided to do one last fundraiser before going to Nationals this year. We contacted Yaya’s Yummys, arranged to have a brief tasting session with the girls so they would know what the products tasted like, and then ran the fundraiser for one week. I can say with full certainty, that this was one of the most convenient, easiest fundraisers we have ever done. After receiving the orders, it only took two days to give us all of our products! They were fantastic to work with, and provided the perfect amount of support. The products were easy to sell, healthy and delicious. We did not have to wait for any money to be returned to us-we collected it all upfront. I purchased some of the products for myself and really enjoyed them. The incentive program offered was also a great motivator! Many thanks to Yaya's Yummys!

As co-advisor to the senior class at Bishop Kearney High School, I am constantly looking for fundraising opportunities that offer a high yield but are relatively effortless. That is rather difficult to find. Throughout the years, I have offered a wide variety of opportunities to our seniors. This year we held a fundraiser through YaYa’s Yummys for our seniors to help defray the cost of their senior trip. I have to say that our experience was an unqualified success!
Yaya met with us to share the information with a core group of seniors, providing samples for them to facilitate their sales knowledge. The seniors were unanimous in their approval of the samples they were given. Many remarked that they would be their biggest customers! Yaya’s presentation was thorough and concise. She had all of the materials needed to ensure a successful experience for our students.
We sold the dip mixes for 10 days and yielded a profit of $925! The students commented that people were eager to purchase them. They also noted that this is a unique fundraiser that hasn’t been “done to death” resulting in more interest and more sales.
Over-all this was an excellent opportunity for our students and an enjoyable experience for all. We are eagerly anticipating working with YaYa’s Yummys again next year.

Thank you so much! We were extremely pleased with the Yaya's Yummy fundraiser. This was a great opportunity for our preschool to earn the funds we needed and you were such a pleasure to work with. The dip mixes are absolutely delicious and make a great gift
for any occasion.

I brought the Taste of Tuscany dipping oil to a party with some beer bread. People started ignoring everything else on the table and just eating that. I used a Lager in making the beer bread. It was sooooooo good and a real hit!

Yaya’s is my one-stop shopping pleasure for casual entertaining needs and for all kinds of hostess, thank-you and holiday gifts. I purchased something for everyone for the holidays!! These delicious products are time-savers that present well and taste amazing. The big plus for me is there are no preservatives or artificial ingredients. I have too many favorites to list! I especially enjoy the dip mixes made with plain yogurt for a treat that tastes sinful, but doesn’t pack the calories. Recipients love to get food gifts that taste authentic and it’s great that Yaya offers ideas on how to put together tasty recipes with ease! I highly recommend these products --- they are genuine and made with love.

Yaya’s Apple pie jam is a must try! It is wonderful on toast and even better warm, on ice cream.I plan on ordering 2 jars the next time. My entire family loved it!

I don’t usually go to Home Shows but I did go to a Yaya’s Yummys home show a few weeks ago with a friend. I am so glad I did! What a great time we had. Yaya brought so many yummy things to try and great ideas on how to make simple, delicious treats. I was so impressed that I even booked a Home Show for my house. Carol M, Rochester, NY
I have purchased many of Yaya’s Yummys products and just love them. I especially love the Tomato jam and the Pepper jelly. I have served them at get togethers and my guests have eaten them all up. So easy and so tasty!

Placed my first order with Yaya's Yummys a few months ago. The dips are outta-this-world delicious! And the Lemon Cloud Bar Mix...omigosh! Another delish dish. I appreciated the fast and more-than-courteous service from Yaya. I highly recommend these products.

I bought some of the Apple Pie jam and we eat it on our bagels every morning. Great name for this jam. It does taste just like apple pie.

I made the best garlic bread ever by spreading the garlic and Herb oil blend mix ( made as directed) on a loaf of Italian bread. I then topped it with provolone cheese and baked it. We ate the entire loaf!

The wheat beer bread, yum!
