White Spot has been a champion for Variety – the Children’s Charity since its inception in 1966. Each year, Variety provides direct help to children and youth by funding needs that range from adaptive, medical and mobility equipment, to specialized therapies, educational support, mental wellness counselling and private autism and psychoeducational assessments.
“Over the 57 years we’ve been fundraising for Variety, White Spot has raised almost $2 million for children with special needs across B.C.,” says Warren Erhart, president of White Spot. “This fundraiser gives our guests the opportunity to enjoy a great tasting burger while making a difference. In addition to funds raised from the sale of menu items, thousands of White Spot employees have volunteered their time during the telethon over the years. Giving back to the community was a core value for our founder, Nat Bailey, and we’re proud to carry the tradition forward.”
“We are deeply grateful for White Spot’s partnership since the beginning, helping to ensure that more kids with complex health care needs have the chance to reach their hopes and dreams,” says Andrea Tang, CEO of Variety. “We believe that every child has the right to live in an inclusive world. The critical support of our donors and partners like White Spot help to transform children’s lives enabling independence, mobility, and social inclusion.”
