Ahoy! Adult Pirate Pak Available August 14 to Support White Spot’s Annual Camp Fundraiser for Special Needs Kids

Pirate Pak Day has raised over $200,000, sending more than 100 campers to Zajac Ranch for Children.

August 07, 2013 // Franchising.com // Arrrr mateys! Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain is bringing back special edition Adult Pirate Paks on August 14, giving the young-at-heart a chance to feel like a kid again – all while helping a worthy cause.

In honour of young mateys who need help the most, White Spot will celebrate its sixth annual Pirate Pak Day by donating $2.00 from each Kids and Adult Pirate Pak sold on Wednesday, August 14 to Zajac Ranch for Children. Zajac Ranch is an established B.C. based charity that provides children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience.

“Our popular Pirate Pak has been ‘sailing’ into happy childhood memories for decades,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “Pirate Pak Day is the perfect chance to revisit those memories while supporting a good cause. The entire team at White Spot is excited to be partnering with Zajac Ranch for the sixth year in a row, and proud to make a difference in the lives of kids facing challenges.”

Since 2008, White Spot has raised $202,470 for Zajac Ranch, providing more than 100 children and young adults the opportunity to create summertime memories and empower them to experience traditional camp activities – an opportunity that wouldn’t otherwise be possible. From August 19 to 23, Zajac Ranch will host White Spot Week, where kids will meet new friends and participate in outdoor sports, such as kayaking and horseback riding.

“Each year, we are grateful for White Spot’s Pirate Pak Day fundraiser, which provides a life-changing summer camp experience for special needs kids in B.C.,” says Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “I encourage everyone to enjoy a Pirate Pak on August 14, so that as many deserving kids as possible can experience summer camp!”

Available for both dine-in and take-out on August 14 only, the special edition ‘Adult Pak’ features a choice of four delicious burger options, including the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, Provolone Veggie Burger on a multigrain bun, and the B.C. Chicken Burger. Starting at $11.49, each meal comes with fresh-cut fries, creamy coleslaw, a soft drink, a scoop of premium ice cream and a ‘gold’ chocolate coin, served in their iconic Pirate Pak boat.
