Pirate Pak Day 2011by
Pirate Paks were a staple of growing up in Metro Vancouver. The family would go out for dinner at White Spot (maybe even drive-in car hop style) and we’d order our Pirate Paks complete with burger, fries, drink, and that signature gold (chocolate) coin.
For the last three years, White Spot has used its iconic Pirate Pak to help support a very worthy cause, the Zajac Ranch for Children. On August 17th they will once again donate $2 from every Pirate Pak sold to support this longtime BC charity that is dedicated to giving children with life-threatening illness and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience.
Thanks to the support of their customers, White Spot has raised more than $105,000 over the past few years and has sent 50 kids to camp since 2008.
To make the campaign on August 17th even more inclusive, you can pick up an Adult Pirate Pak that will come with one of White Spot’s legendary burger combos, a soft drink, ice cream and of course that shiny coin.
For some reason I always thought that you could turn the cardboard pirate ship into a hat, but my memory may be deceiving me on that one… I digress.
Show your support this Wednesday and take the kids, or your friends, out for lunch or dinner and support Zajac Ranch for Children.
The Zajac Ranch for Children is a summer camp set on the shores of Stave Lake in Mission, BC. The ranch serves children with serious and chronic illnesses and disabilities. The Zajac Ranch seeks to normalize and enhance the lives of the children that attend camp by offering innovative and unique programs in a caring and supportive environment.

The pirate pak DID use to be a hat! …you know…unless my memory is deceiving me as well. 🙂
Don’t you just stick your head in the space where the Burger is? nothing like triple O sauce and ketchup in your hair.
I’m pretty sure it was a hat too, but haven’t seen kids do that as an adult, maybe we were just weird kids :p
I remember pirate cutouts on the bottom that you would put your fingers in so you could make the pirates walk around. GOLD COINS!
Pirate cut outs were great, but I remember having a hard time choosing between playing with the cut outs and floating the boat in the tub (however temporarily the cardboard lasted)
