Arrrh, Pirate Paks to benefit B.C. kids

Calling all buccaneers!

On Wednesday, Aug. 13, adults can feel like kids again when they enjoy an Adult Pirate Pak at 61 White Spot restaurants throughout British Columbia, plus several locations in Alberta.

The seventh annual fundraiser gives $2 from the sale of every Pirate Pak to Zajac Ranch for Children, an established B.C. charity that provides kids and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a memorable summer camp experience.

“Pirate Pak Day has become an annual celebration that helps young mateys facing life-long challenges,” said White Spot President Warren Erhart. “It’s the perfect way for the young-at-heart to feel like a kid again, while supporting an amazing cause. We’re honoured to continue our work with Zajac Ranch.”

Pirate Pak Day has become an annual tradition that has already raised a total of $268,386 and sent more than 100 children to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from August 18 to 22 and includes activities ranging from horseback riding and kayaking.

“Our long-standing partnership with White Spot provides a direct benefit to kids in need,” says Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “It’s so rewarding to see their faces light up when they try new camp activities, which are specially tailored to kids with special needs.”

Available for both dine-in and take-out on Aug. 13 only, Adult Pirate Paks for come in four options:

  • Legendary Burger – our most popular option!
  • B.C. Chicken Burger
  • Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger
  • Provolone Veggie Burger
