Kids and adults alike can relive the memories on August 14 with White Spot's Pirate Pak Day

Thousands of people enjoyed Pirate Paks at a White Spot on Aug. 14, helping them raise a record $65,916 to send kids and youth with special needs to Zajac Ranch for Children.

White Spot donated two bucks from each Kids and Adult Pirate Pak sold – plus donations received in lieu of Pirate Paks – to Zajac Ranch, a B.C. charity that gives children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable camp experience.

With the sixth annual Pirate Pak Day concluded, the initiative has raised a total of $268,386 and sent 160 kids to summer camp since the program began in 2008 – helping provide an unforgettable and empowering experience.

“Pirate Pak Day has once again resulted in an incredible outpouring of generosity from White Spot guests,” says White Spot president Warren Erhart. “We are delighted to celebrate a record-breaking donation. This year we sold 32,458 Pirate Paks to both the young and young-at-heart, providing the opportunity for us to help even more kids enjoy life-changing experiences at Zajac Ranch.”

At the Chilliwack White Spot in 2012, a total of 373 Pirate Paks were sold on Pirate Pak Day alone, with a total of 14,241 purchased at the Chilliwack location throughout the year.
