White Spot brings back the ‘Adult Pirate Pak’ on August 17 to raise money for Zajac Ranch Children’s Charity

B.C.’s iconic restaurant chain has raised more than $105,000 to send kids with special needs to camp

VANCOUVER –August 9, 2011– Back by popular demand, White Spot’s special edition ‘Adult Pirate Paks’ are sailing onto tables August 17 to once again raise money for Zajac Ranch for Children.

To celebrate the fourth annual Pirate Pak Day on Wednesday, August 17, $2 from the sale of each kids and adult Pirate Pak and contributions received in lieu of Pirate Paks will be donated to the Zajac Ranch. Zajac Ranch is a longtime B.C. charity dedicated to giving children with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience.

With more than $105,000 raised over the past three years, White Spot has sent a total of 50 kids to Zajac Ranch since 2008.

“For one day only, adults have the opportunity to be kids again and reminisce about the excitement and magic of childhood dining experiences at White Spot all for a fantastic cause,” said Warren Erhart, president of White Spot. “Last year we raised a record $40,822 in one day. This year we’re hoping to donate even more to Zajac Ranch for Children.”

A traditional White Spot menu favourite since 1968, the Pirate Pak was first created by Nat Bailey to provide a unique dining experience for kids age 10 and under. The children’s Pirate Pak costs $5.99 and is available in a range of delicious options including two slider burgers, a regular hamburger, grilled cheese sandwich, Pirate Pals crispy-coated chicken, macaroni and cheese or lightly battered Pacific Cod. White Spot’s special edition ‘Adult Pak’ will be available Wednesday, August 17 only, and starting at $10.49, features a choice of four mouth-watering burger options including the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, Provolone Veggie Burger on a multigrain bun and the BC Chicken Burger. Each meal is served in the iconic boat and comes complete with fresh-cut fries, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold” coin.
