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