VANCOUVER — White Spot locations across B.C. and Alberta raised a record $105,748 for White Spot’s seventh annual Pirate Pak Day fundraiser held on Aug. 10.
White Spot donated $2 from each Kid’s and Adult Pirate Pak sold to Zajac Ranch, a B.C.-based charity offering children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable camp experience.
This year’s event saw a record number of 52,874 Pirate Paks sold, with the location at 19651 Fraser Hwy in Langley, B.C. selling the most — nearly 3,000.
“It’s amazing to see the momentum of Pirate Pak Day build year after year,” says White Spot president Warren Erhart. “Our staff members have a great time getting dressed up in pirate regalia for a good cause and we enjoy some friendly competition between restaurants to see who can serve the most Pirate Paks. I’d like to extend a warm thank-you to all our guests who came out to show their support.”
Since the program’s inception, White Spot has raised a total of $555,748, providing hundreds of “young mateys” with a summer camp experience.
