Help send kids to summer camp

White Spot's annual Pirate Pak fundraising event Aug. 14 supports Zajac Ranch in Maple Ridge

For the sixth straight year, White Spot Restaurants are working with B.C. communities to send kids and young adults to the Zajac Ranch for Children in Maple Ridge.

On Aug. 14, diners purchasing adult-sized versions of the popular Pirate Pak kids’ meals will have a portion of its cost donated to the charity.

White Spot will contribute $2 from the sale of the adult Pirate Paks next Wednesday toward the summer camp, which is designed to accommodate campers with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

Since 2008, the restaurant chain has donated more than $200,000 to the Zajac Ranch, sending more than 100 B.C. children to the annual week-long recreational experience.
