      Don’t be surprised if you see local diners decked out in buccaneer gear around town next week.

      Canada’s longest running restaurant chain, White Spot, is bringing back its popular Pirate Pak Day on Wednesday (August 14) to all 64 of its locations throughout B.C. and Alberta.

      The swashbuckler-themed meal that’s normally reserved for kids 10 and under will be available to guests of all ages for one-day only.

      For adults, each Pirate Pak is served with a choice of burgers, fish-and-chips, dippin’ chicken, or an original beef dip. The photo-worthy and recyclable boat also includes fresh-cut fries, coleslaw, a soft drink, ice cream, and the iconic chocolate gold coin.

      $2 from each sale will go toward White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch for Children: an inclusive and accessible summer camp for kids with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

      “Our long-standing partnership with White Spot provides a direct benefit for kids with medical needs,” Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children, said in a press statement. “Each year, we are grateful for its Pirate Pak Day fundraiser, which helps provide life-changing camp experiences for children in B.C. and across Canada. We encourage everyone to partake in a Pirate Pak on August 14 so that as many children as possible can experience summer camp.”

      In its 10th year, the annual fundraiser has raised $780,776 since its beginnings and has sent more than 400 children to the summertime camp. Last year, 53,719 Pirate Paks were sold to hungry patrons.
