White Spot Teams at Kingsway and Richmond Centre Locations Continue to Make Spirits Bright by Donating Time and Tips to Support Local Causes.
VANCOUVER, BC (December 19, 2019) — In keeping with a longstanding tradition, beloved BC restaurant chain White Spot will give back to the community by hosting special Christmas Charity Lunch Services at their Kingsway and Richmond Centre locations between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Wednesday, December 25.
The employee-led initiative sees staff and management from both locations donate all net proceeds including wages and tips earned on the day to Variety – The Children’s Charity (Kingsway) and The Richmond Hospital Foundation (Richmond Centre). Since its inception in 2001, the initiative has generated more than $242,370 for both causes, with both locations raising a combined total of $20,373.57 in 2018.
The Christmas Day menus vary by location, but offer such White Spot favourites as The Legendary Burger, The Spot’s Fish & Chips, Traditional Roast Turkey Dinner and Nat’s Beef Dip, while the Richmond Centre location will also feature a variety of brunch specials such as Classic Benedicts, Shrimp Florentine and Cheesesteak Hash.
“The holiday season is all about giving, and we’re so proud to continue supporting two very worthy causes in our community with this special initiative,” says White Spot President Warren Erhart. “Our heartfelt appreciation goes out to our front- and back-of-house staff members who donate their time each year, and to all of our guests who join in the fun and festivities on Christmas Day.”
