A new eatery at Morgan Crossing opened its doors earlier this month, raising money for Peace Arch Hospital and Community Health Foundation in the process.

In the lead-up to White Spot’s opening to the public June 9, the restaurant – located at 15877 Croydon Dr. – held training sessions, which allowed family and friends of staff to test out the menu and service free of charge. In lieu of payment, guests were encouraged to make a donation to the foundation, resulting in more than $7,200 being raised for the hospital foundation.

Proceeds from White Spot’s fundraising will benefit the foundation’s fifth and final Partners in Caring Campaign project – a new emergency department.
