Thank you!


This year's Just Say YAYA benefit was our biggest and best yet! Thirty years of YAYA artists joined us from around the country to celebrate this milestone anniversary and help us honor our founder, Jana Napoli. Together, we raised more than $150,000 for YAYA’s free after-school arts and entrepreneurship training for young New Orleanians! Scroll down to browse this year’s Just Say YAYA photo gallery. 

If you were not able to join us, it's not too late to see our exhibition of work by YAYAs past and present!

Monday-Friday, 10am-6pm
