White Spot is hosting Pirate Pak Day tomorrow. When you order a Pirate Pak at a White Spot restaurant in BC on Wednesday, August 15, 2012 they will donate $2 to the Zajac Ranch for Children.
Zajac Ranch is a local charity that gives children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable summer camp experience.
You can order the Kids Pirate Pak (which is always available) or on this day only you can order the special-edition Adult Pirate Pak. This comes with your choice of one of White Spot’s legendary burger combos complete with fresh-cut fries, a soft drink, a scoop of ice cream and a chocolate “gold” coin. It’s a chance for everyone to feel like a kid again and support a cause that helps kids be kids.
Over the past four years, White Spot has raised more than $152,000 for the ranch, giving 75 children the opportunity to meet new friends and experience traditional camp activities, such as canoeing, archery and horseback riding.
“White Spot’s Pirate Pak Day fundraiser has resulted in very generous contributions to our camp program, providing life-changing experiences for special needs kids across B.C.,” said Mel Zajac, founder of the Zajac Ranch for Children. “We are excited to be reuniting with White Spot on this initiative again in 2012 and encourage everyone to get out and enjoy a Pirate Pak on August 15.” [Source: Press Release]
Options for the Adult Pirate Pak (available only tomorrow, starting at $10.99) feature a choice of four burger options, including the Legendary Burger, Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger, Provolone Veggie Burger on a multigrain bun and the BC Chicken Burger.
The original Kids Pirate Pak is celebrating its 44th anniversary this year as well. It’s not the same Pirate Pak that I remember as a child (and always thought I could make a hat out of the cardboard boat). There are now Pirate Pak options like a grilled cheese sandwich, Pirate Pals, spaghetti and meatball, macaroni and cheese, lightly battered Pacific Cod, or Health Check approved Lifestyle pizza combo. Of course you can also get the classic hamburger with finger-licking Triple “O” sauce as well.
