VANCOUVER — B.C.-based restaurant chain, White Spot, and its premium QSR brand Triple O’s will hold a fundraiser on Thursday, July 29, to support Canadian Red Cross relief efforts for those impacted by the hundreds of wildfires currently burning in the province.
Taking place at all restaurant locations, as well as on the 11 B.C. Ferries offering White Spot, $2 will be donated from the sale of every burger purchased that day for dine-in and to-go orders (excludes Pirate Paks, kids’ meals, delivery and other discounts). In addition, the Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia will each match every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross 2021 B.C. Fires appeal, totalling a $6 donation for every burger sold.
“The B.C. wildfires are having a devastating impact on our province including many of the communities in which we call home,” says Warren Erhart, president, White Spot Restaurants. “We are a community-first organization and are proud to have received immediate agreement from our family of franchisees and partners to provide support. We hope these much-needed funds will provide some relief to those who need it most during this extremely challenging time.”
“Thanks to the generosity of Canadians everywhere, the Canadian Red Cross is able to support the immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts during this wildfire season in British Columbia,” adds John Kim, associate director, Corporate Partnerships, Canadian Red Cross. “A special thank you to White Spot, Triple O’s, B.C. Ferries and all of their guests and passengers for their incredible support this July 29.”
Donations will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and preparedness for future events in British Columbia and impacted regions, including consequential events related to the fires.
