Ahoy mateys! On Wednesday, Aug. 12, buccaneers both young and young-at-heart can re-live childhood memories by ordering an Adult Pirate Pak at White Spot restaurants throughout B.C.

For the sixth consecutive year, a toonie from the sale of every Pirate Pak will be donated to Zajac Ranch for Children, a local charity that provides kids and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a unique summer camp experience.

Pirate Pak Day has become an annual tradition that has raised a total of $347,172 since its inception and sent more than 200 individuals to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from Aug. 17 to 21 in Mission and includes activities ranging from kayaking and climbing to swimming and horseback riding.

“White Spot has become integral in our ability to enrich the lives of kids who need support,” said Mel Zajac, founder of Zajac Ranch for Children. “Community initiatives like Pirate Pak Day help us offer illness-specific camps that put smiles of the faces of these kids. For instance, many of our campers get to ride a horse for the first time in their life.”

On Aug. 12 only, Adult Pirate Paks will be available, for dine-in or take-out, in four options: Legendary Burger; BC Chicken Burger; Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger; and Portobello Provolone Veggie Burger

Each comes in the Pirate Pak boat, with a bounty of fries, coleslaw, soft drink, ice cream and of course, the chocolate “gold” coin.

In Surrey and North Delta, there are five White Spot locations: 15157 Hwy. 10; 15877 Croydon Dr.; 10181 152 St.; 13580 102 Ave.; and 7207 120 St.
