Pirate Paks help send kids to camp

White Spot Restaurant is holding its Pirate Pak Day Aug. 12, at 60 B.C. locations, including Vernon

Yo ho ho and a hamburger to help.

White Spot Restaurant is holding its Pirate Pak Day Aug. 12, at 60 B.C. locations, including Vernon, and at four Alberta restaurants.

Due to the overwhelming response, Pirate Pak Day has become an annual celebration, and for the sixth year, adults can be a kid again and order their very own Adult Pirate Pak.

On Pirate Pak Day, $2 from the sale of each Pirate Pak will be donated to the Zajac Ranch for Children, a long-time B.C. charity dedicated to giving children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience.

White Spot will be sending children to Zajac Ranch during White Spot Week from Aug. 17 to 21.

The kids will participate in a variety of activities such as horseback riding, kayaking, water sports and arts and crafts – an opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise be possible.

To date, White Spot has raised a total of $347,172 for Zajac Ranch for Children and sent more than 200 kids to camp.

The Adult Pirate Pak offers four options; the Legendary burger, B.C. chicken burger, bacon cheddar bigger burger and provolone veggie burger.

Almost a million Pirate Paks were sold last year (39,350 of them were on Pirate Pak Day alone).
