On Wednesday, Aug. 12, buccaneers both young and young-at-heart can re-live childhood memories by ordering an Adult Pirate Pak at the White Spot restaurant in Duncan and throughout British Columbia and four locations in Alberta.
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 raised a total of $347,172 since its inception, and sent more than 100 hearties to camp. White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch runs from Aug. 17 to 21 and includes activities ranging from kayaking and climbing to swimming and horseback riding.
“Pirate Pak Day is a big event for us, one that both our staff and guests look forward to every year,” said White Spot President Warren Erhart. “Money raised on this special day helps young mateys facing difficult challenges, and wouldn’t be possible without the participation of our valued guests. We’ll be dressed up in our best swashbuckling outfits, so come join the merriment!”
“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.”
