White Spot raises $19,176.38 for Charity at Annual Christmas Day Luncheon

December 28, 2015 // Franchising.com // Merry Christmas! An annual yuletide event, the Christmas Day luncheon at the Richmond Centre and Kingsway Vancouver White Spot restaurants raised a recording-breaking $19,176.38 for two local charities.

Friends and family we're invited to join the merriment by enjoying award-winning Legendary burgers and other Spot Classics on Christmas Day, to help support deserving local charities. This year’s fundraiser generated $11,288.38 at Richmond Centre and $7,888 at Kingsway Vancouver for the Richmond Hospital Foundation and Variety – The Children’s Charity, respectively. Since its inception, more than $180,000 has been raised by the luncheon, in which all proceeds, staff time and tips from the afternoon are donated for a good cause.

“The holidays are a season of giving,” said Warren Erhart, White Spot president. “I’m so appreciative of our staff members who donate their time on Christmas Day, year after year, to make a real difference in their communities. Our holiday season event has become a much-anticipated White Spot tradition.”
