White Spot’s beloved Pirate Pak Day returns after three-year hiatus


Ahoy Mateys!

Gather your crew and ready your sea legs—after a three-year hiatus, Pirate Pak Day is making a spirited return to White Spot on Wednesday, August 16th.

This much-loved annual event promises a day of thrilling pirate-themed fun and fundraising, with a noble mission to surpass a lifetime charitable donation of $1 million, all dedicated to supporting children and youth in need.

It’s the one day a year when adults can be kids again and enjoy their very own Pirate Pak!

Available for dine-in and takeout, the selection includes White Spot’s signature burgers like the Legendary, BC Chicken, Bacon Cheddar, and the Brie & Mushroom Veggie along with the White Spot Club and the Dippin’ Chicken.

For each adult and kid’s Pirate Pak sold through dine-in and take-out, $2 will be contributed towards sending children and young adults to the Zajac Ranch for Children, a beloved BC-based charity.

The ranch is devoted to providing unforgettable camp experiences for children and young adults facing life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

“One of White Spot’s values has long been a deep commitment to people and the community. Pirate Pak Day holds a special place in our hearts because it exemplifies these values while also showing the immense positive impact that a day of fun can have in young people’s lives,” said Trent Carroll, President, White Spot Hospitality.

“This year is especially important as we strive to surpass the million-dollar mark in our accumulative Pirate Pak Day fundraising efforts, so we have all hands on deck to help us reach this historic milestone.”

In its 11th year, Pirate Pak Day has already raised a commendable $889,502, equivalent to 444,751 Pirate Paks sold.

The funds have sent hundreds of children and young adults to experience the joys of camp life at the 41-acre Zajac Ranch in Mission.

Here, campers partake in a myriad of activities, including horseback riding, kayaking, water sports, and arts and crafts – experiences that would otherwise be beyond their reach.

The Pirate Pak, a popular children’s meal,  was first introduced to “Little Mateys” in 1968, and is usually only available for children aged 10 and under.

So don your best eyepatches, or go as you are, and join in the revelry of Pirate Pak Day at any of the 53 White Spot locations (excluding Kelowna Airport, R+D Kitchen by White Spot & Triple O’s).
