A toonie from every Pirate Pak sold at White Spot on Wednesday

Ahoy, burger-loving buccaneers!

A toonie from every Pirate Pak sold at White Spot Restaurants on Wednesday will go to Zajac Ranch, a camp for kids with chronic and life-threatening illnesses.

The local White Spot has been a big part of providing kids with exciting camp experiences for the past eight years through this tasty fundraiser.

There were 734 Pirate Paks sold last year in Chilliwack on Pirate Pak Day, which was a solid increase of 30 per cent over the year before, when they sold 564 in 2013.

In 2012 they saw 373 Pirate themed burgers sold, so the totals have been going up in recent years.

Generous patrons get to choose from four types of burgers on Pirate Pak day, and for many British Columbians, the distinctive pirate ship packaging with a gold coin brings back good memories.

White Spot has handed over $347,172 to the local charity, Zajac Ranch for Children, which has provided memories for 200 kids and young adults attending their summer camp.

The camp will be held Aug. 17-21 with kids trying out everything 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,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart.

“We’ll be dressed up in our best swashbuckling outfits, so come join the merriment!”

On August 12 only, Adult Pirate Paks are available for both dine-in and take-out, in four flavours:

• Legendary Burger

• BC Chicken Burger

• Bacon Cheddar Bigger Burger

• Portobello Provolone Veggie Burger

Each burger sits in the nostalgic Pirate Pak boat, which is 100 per cent recyclable with a bounty of fresh-cut fries, creamy coleslaw, soft drink, premium rich ice cream and of course, the treasured chocolate coin in gold wrapping.
