Guests turn out in droves to help support the cause


VANCOUVER, July 17, 2017 /CNW/ - On Thursday, July 13, White Spot and Triple O’s guests across B.C. and Alberta helped raise $60,000 to support BC wildfire relief efforts.  All 65 White Spot restaurants and participating Triple O’s, along with BC Ferries vessels who offer White Spot on board, donated $2 from the sale of every burger platter or combo, with every dollar raised going to the Red Cross.

“White Spot and Triple O’s guests, franchisees and employees have a long-standing tradition of giving,” says Warren Erhart, President of White Spot.  “When there is a need, our teams and partners are always ready to help at a moment’s notice, and our guests always support in any way they can.  Our thoughts and hearts go out to those who have been affected by the fires, and we are grateful to be able to contribute to the relief efforts.”

The Canadian Red Cross is providing relief for those affected and a British Columbia Fires Appeal has been opened for Canadians who wish to help those in need.  Donations to the B.C. Fires Appeal will help provide immediate relief such as cots, blankets, family reunification as well as financial assistance so individuals and families can get the food, clothing, shelter, and anything else that can help them recover from this tragedy.  Donations to the Red Cross are being accepted by phone – text FIRES to 45678 or online at
