It’s that time of the year again—Vancouverites of all ages will soon be able to indulge in an annual tradition at Canada’s longest running restaurant-chain, for a good cause.
The ninth annual Pirate Pak Day returns to more than 62 White Spot restaurants throughout B.C. and Alberta next Wednesday (August 15).
The fun meal is served in a whimsical pirate boat, with menu items that include White Spot’s classic legendary burger, B.C. chicken burger, bacon-cheddar burger, veggie burger, the White Spot club, the Spot’s fish and chips, and more. Each boat also comes with fresh-cut fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, ice cream, and a sought-after chocolate “gold” coin.
Two dollars from each sale will go toward Zajac Ranch for Children—a local charity that provides kids and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a unique summer camp experience.
“Pirate Pak Day is a big fundraising event for us, one that both our guests and staff look forward to every year,” said White Spot president Warren Erhart, in a press statement. “Money raised on this special day helps young mateys facing difficult challenges, and wouldn’t be possible without the participation of our valued guests.”
Over $600,000 has been raised since its inception in 2009, which has helped send more than 400 buccaneers to camp. This year’s White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs August 20 to 23, and will feature activities such as kayaking, climbing, swimming, and horseback riding.
The adult Pirate Pak menu is available for one-day only, and can be enjoyed for dine-in and take-out.
