Never underestimate the power of nostalgia for a made-in-B.C. legend – or the lure of a legendary lunch.
With the White Spot at 19651 Fraser Hwy in Langley leading the haul with nearly 3,000 brigs sold, this year’s Pirate Pak Day raised $105,748 of loot for charity, the campaign’s best-ever, thanks to patrons of White Spot eateries across the province Aug. 10.
The bounty will send 70 children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities to camp for a week.
The annual campaign sees Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain donating $2 from every Pirate Pak sold to Zajac Ranch, a B.C. charity that runs a camp in Mission.
The campaign has raised $555,748 since its inception. This year’s White Spot Week at the ranch (Aug. 15-19) will see campers be participating in a variety of activities, including horseback riding, kayaking, watersports and arts and crafts.
