Pirate Paks raise money for camp

This year’s Pirate Pak Day raised $78,786 of ‘bounty’ for charity.  The popular White Spot kids’ meals were offered to adults on Wednesday to support the restaurant chain’s annual fundraiser to help send children to Zajac Ranch. The camp is aimed at children and young adults with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities.

More than 39,000 Pirate Paks were sold this year and money raised will help send 50 children to the camp, located in Mission.
