Langley did it again.
For the third year running, the White Spot at 19651 Fraser Highway sold the most boats on Pirate Pak Day on Wednesday, Aug. 10.
White Spot guests across B.C. and Alberta raised a record $105,748 for White Spot’s seventh consecutive Pirate Pak Day fundraiser.
This year’s event saw a record 52,874 Pirate Paks sold, with the Fraser Highway Langley restaurant selling the most iconic boats, at nearly 3,000.
For one special day each year, both the young and young-at-heart can purchase the iconic boat from Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain. Bounty raised this year will help send 70 children and young adults to Zajac Ranch in Mission.
White Spot donated $2 from each Kids and Adult Pirate Pak sold to Zajac Ranch, a B.C. charity that gives children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities an unforgettable camp experience.
Since the program’s inception, White Spot has raised a total of $555,748, providing hundreds of young mateys with a summer camp experience. White Spot staff and enthusiastic guests dressed up as modern day swashbucklers for a good cause, and photos are available on the White Spot Facebook page or by searching #whitespot #PiratePakDay on Twitter & Instagram.
“It’s amazing to see the momentum of Pirate Pak Day build year after year,” said White Spot president Warren Erhart. “Our staff members have a great time getting dressed up in pirate regalia for a good cause, and we enjoy some friendly competition between restaurants to see who can serve the most Pirate Paks. I’d like to extend a warm thank-you to all our guests who came out to show their support.”
