Pirate Pak Day returns August 9!

Come be a kid again to help support Zajac Ranch for Children.

Aug 1, 2017 – Vancouver, B.C. – Ahoy! On Wednesday, August 9, buccaneers both young and young-at-heart can re-live childhood memories by ordering an Adult Pirate Pak at 62 White Spot restaurants throughout British Columbia and four locations in Alberta. For the eighth consecutive year, a toonie from the sale of every Pirate Pak will be donated to 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 has become an anticipated annual tradition that has raised a total of $ 555,748 since its inception, and sent more than 370 hearties to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from August 14 to 18 and includes activities ranging from kayaking and climbing to swimming and horseback riding.

“Pirate Pak Day is a big fundraising event for us, one that both our guests and staff look forward to every year,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “Money raised on this special day helps young mateys facing difficult challenges, and wouldn’t be possible without the participation of our valued guests. Everyone embraces the spirit of the day with both staff and guests alike donning their swashbuckling best for the occasion! ”

“Our long-standing partnership with White Spot provides a direct benefit to kids with medical needs,” says Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “Each year, we are grateful for White Spot’s Pirate Pak Day fundraiser, which helps provide life-changing summer camp experiences for children in B.C. and across Canada. I encourage everyone to enjoy a Pirate Pak on August 9, so that as many deserving kids as possible can experience summer camp!”

On August 9 only, Adult Pirate Pak menu is available for both dine-in and take-out.

• Legendary Burger – a classic!
• BC Chicken Burger
• Bacon Cheddar Burger
• Sriracha Portobello Veggie Burger

• Dippin’ Chicken
• The White Spot Club

In addition to our traditional Burger Pirate Paks, we will also be donating $2 from entrees and sandwiches from our Pirate Pak Day menu.

White Spot burgers are proudly made with 100% fresh Canadian beef, fresh BC chicken breast and secret Triple “O” sauce, and come on our specially baked artisan-style bun. Each burger option comes in the nostalgic Pirate Pak boat, with a bounty of fresh-cut ‘endless’ fries, creamy coleslaw, soft drink, premium rich ice cream and of course, the treasured chocolate ‘gold’ coin.

New Ways to help the kids
Helping to raise even more money this year, White Spot partners will donate $0.25 for every sleeve or pint from the BC craft beer list or glass from the 100% BC VQA wine list ordered to Zajac ranch. Also new this year, guests who can’t make it to a White Spot location on August 9, will have the option of donating right from their mobile device. Guests can text PIRATE to 20222 to donate $10 to Zajac Ranch.
