White Spot Fundraiser Provides Summer Camp Experience for Kids in Need


VANCOUVER — On August 10, 61 White Spot restaurants throughout B.C. and four locations in Alberta will donate $2 from the sale of every Pirate Pak to Zajac Ranch for Children, a local charity providing kids and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a unique summer camp experience.

Now in its seventh year, Pirate Pak Day has raised more than $450,000 and sent more than 300 kids to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from Aug. 15 to 19 and includes activities such as kayaking, climbing, swimming and horseback riding.

“Pirate Pak Day is a big event for us, one that both our guests and staff look forward to every year,” says White Spot president Warren Erhart. “Money raised on this special day helps young [people] facing difficult challenges and wouldn’t be possible without the participation of our valued guests.”

In addition to its traditional Burger Pirate Paks, White Spot will also be donating $2 from select entrees, sandwiches and salads from its Pirate Pak Day menu.

“White Spot has become integral in our ability to enrich the lives of kids who need support,” says Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “Community initiatives such as Pirate Pak Day help us offer illness-specific camps that put smiles on the faces of these kids.”
