White Spot's 10th Annual Pirate Pak Day Raises $108,726 to Send Deserving Kids and Young Adults to Camp

VANCOUVER, BC (August 15, 2019) — Beloved BC restaurant chain White Spot reaffirmed its commitment to the community at large and raised a total of $108,726 to send deserving kids and young adults to White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch for Children during its 10th annual Pirate Pak Day yesterday.


Taking place at all 64 White Spot restaurants throughout BC and Alberta, Pirate Pak Day is an annual fundraiser that gives adults a one-day-only opportunity to relive childhood memories and support a worthy cause by ordering one of the famous kids’ combos served in the buccaneers’ boat.

Since its inception, Pirate Pak Day has raised $889,502 and sent more than 400 children to the White Spot Week at Zajac Ranch, a fully inclusive summer camp where everything is accessible for children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities. During the week, campers have an opportunity to explore the outdoors while developing greater social and environmental awareness, increased self-confidence, and positive attitudes towards physical activity.


“This fundraiser is all about kids — both the young and the young-at-heart,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “We’re thrilled that Pirate Pak Day continues to be one of the most anticipated events for both our staff and guests, and we are able to do our part to support a very worthy cause. We’re looking forward to surpassing the million-dollar mark during next year’s event.”

In 2018, almost a million Pirate Paks were ordered at White Spot restaurants. Since making its debut on the White Spot menu in 1968, more than 24 million Pirate Paks have been sold. Today, Pirate Pak boats are 100% recyclable and compostable and offer hundreds of menu combinations, including vegetarian options.

Why WompleMail?


Kids are naturally curious about things that are "different." That's why WompleMail teaches them about unique and awe-inspiring destinations that your kids (and maybe even you) haven't heard much about. Visit a different place every month through letters and activities sent by a traveling Womple companion: mysterious sculptures on Rapa Nui, biological preserves in Madagascar, the southernmost city in the world in Tierra Del Fuego, and many more.


Kids will LOVE getting their own mail. They also love sending their own letters and postcards, sharing their newfound knowledge of different places and cultures with family and friends! That's why every month, along with letters, stickers, maps, and other activities, WompleMail gives kids everything they need to create and send their own snail-mail: cards, envelopes, and postcards custom designed around that month's location, open-ended writing and drawing prompts, and (obviously) stamps!

New Trailer for Disney's “MALEFICENT: MISTRESS OF EVIL”

In Disney’s “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil,” a sequel to the 2014 global box office hit, Maleficent and her goddaughter Aurora begin to question the complex family ties that bind them as they are pulled in different directions by impending nuptials, unexpected allies and dark new forces at play. 


The years have been kind to Maleficent and Aurora. Their relationship, born of heartbreak, revenge and ultimately love, has flourished. Yet the hatred between man and the fairies still exists. Aurora’s impending marriage to Prince Phillip is cause for celebration in the kingdom of Ulstead and the neighboring Moors, as the wedding serves to unite the two worlds. When an unexpected encounter introduces a powerful new alliance, Maleficent and Aurora are pulled apart to opposing sides in a Great War, testing their loyalties and causing them to question whether they can truly be family.


A follow-up to the 2014 global box-office hit with Angelina Jolie and Elle Fanning reprising their roles as the dark fairy Maleficent and Princess Aurora, the film also stars Michelle Pfeiffer, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Sam Riley, Harris Dickinson, Ed Skrein, Imelda Staunton, Juno Temple and Lesley Manville. Be sure to check it out and don’t forget to see “Maleficent: Mistress of Evil” when it hits theatres October 18, 2019, just in time for Halloween!
