White Spot Pirate Paks benefit kids’ ranch

Calling all buccaneers.

On Wednesday, adults can feel like kids again when they enjoy an adult Pirate Pak at White Spot restaurants in B.C., including in Vernon. The seventh annual fundraiser gives $2 from the sale of every Pirate Pak to Zajac Ranch for Children, which provides youth 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 raised $268,386 to date and sent more than 100 children to camp.

“Our long-standing partnership with White Spot provides a direct benefit to kids in need,” said 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.”
