We posted a story last week about Edmonds yoga instructor Yvette Sanchez and her two children — 9-year-old Jacob and 6-year-old Sophia — who are struggling to pick up the pieces after the family’s husband and father Ben Busby-Collins died Jan. 19.

Friend Leah Barnett established a donation page, which so far has raised $1,900 to help the family with clothing, shoes and groceries. She has since added a new component: Those donating $50 or more will be entered into a raffle for prices, including salon services at Ombu Salon and Spa, a gift basket from local Edmonds boutique Cest La Vie and Arista Wine Cellar, and a five-class pass from Twist Vinyasa Yoga.

Local businesses willing to add to the list of raffle items can contact Barnett directly at

  1. I had no idea what Yvette was growing through! I’m so sorry and definitely will donate. I took a class of hers at Harbor Square. She’s a wonderful yoga instructor!
