Iconic B.C. restaurant chain White Spot is stepping up to help support firefighting efforts in the province.

Next Thursday (July 29), White Spot and its brand Triple O’s will be holding a fundraising day to support Canadian Red Cross relief efforts for those impacted by the hundreds of wildfires currently burning in B.C.

Taking place at all 96 White Spot and Triple O’s restaurants throughout B.C. and on the 11 BC Ferries offering White Spot, $2 will be donated from the sale of every burger purchased that day for dine-in and to-go orders (excludes Pirate Paks, Kids Meals, delivery and other discounts). In addition, the Government of Canada and the Government of British Columbia will each match every dollar donated to the Canadian Red Cross 2021 BC Fires appeal, totalling a $6 donation for every burger sold.

“The B.C. wildfires are having a devastating impact on our province including many of the communities in which we call home,” said Warren Erhart president of White Spot Restaurants. “We are a community-first organization and are proud to have received immediate agreement from our family of franchisees and partners to provide support. We hope these much-needed funds will provide some relief to those who need it most during this extremely challenging time.”

“Thanks to the generosity of Canadians everywhere, the Canadian Red Cross is able to support the immediate and ongoing relief and recovery efforts during this wildfire season in British Columbia," said John Kim, associate director of corporate partnerships for the Canadian Red Cross. 

In 2017, a similar fundraising initiative raised $60,000 to support B.C. wildfire relief efforts. This year, donations will be used for immediate and ongoing relief efforts, long-term recovery, resiliency, and preparedness for future events related to the fires.
