Do you have what it takes to pull a 60 ton plane across the finish line? On Sunday, July 7th, 2019, teams of 20 will be challenged in the ultimate tug-of-war against a FedEx 757 cargo plane. It’s all done in support of Orbis Canada, and its mission to end avoidable blindness around the world.
Plane Pull for Sight is an annual event that spans Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto, and includes a host of fun activities including a giant obstacle course, bouncy castles, face painting and you guessed it, delicious soft serve ice cream desserts!
The Praguery ice cream truck will be there to cheer on the teams and serve our delicious European pastries, including our Prague cones and chimney cakes.
What is Orbis Canada all about?
The Plane Pull for Sight event was created to raise support for the Orbis Flying Eye Hospital, an ophthalmic teaching and training hospital on board a Fedex MD-10 aircraft. This flying hospital travels around the world to mentor, train and inspire other eye care professionals in their respective countries.
What difference can you make?
Last year’s record-breaking event raised over $322,800. Orbis Canada plans to smash that record this year with a fundraising goal of $350,000. Sign up is easy. But you can also show your support by showing up to cheer on the various teams on the day.
If it’s a scorcher of a day like we expect it to be, our ice cream truck will be there to cool you down with our sweet and fresh desserts.
Our food truck menu
Our dessert food truck has a slew of exciting items on its catering menu including the ever-popular Prague cone. The options are vast but we think the lemon Prague cone is a good place to start! However, if you’re looking to explore new flavours, may we suggest our personal favourite?: The Mr. Berry, a decadent cone filled with berry compote, vanilla soft serve and strawberry sauce. Drool.
We always make sure to have something on hand for our salt lovers with our savoury cones. The flavours are nothing to scoff at. Our pastry truck serves up mouth-watering rotisserie-baked cones filled with baked cheddar and pulled pork, pineapple salsa, classic Bavarian cabbage and even mac and cheese.
Last but certainly not least, The Praguery food truck is proud to serve traditional chimney cakes at our catering events. A fluffy pastry dipped in spice, guests can choose from almond, cinnamon and sugar, and shredded coconut flavours.
The Praguery takes your event up a notch
With two food trucks with their own source of power and water, we’re completely self sufficient and don’t require any set up or clean up after an event. From charity events like the Plane Pull for Sight to corporate catering events, we can simply show up and serve our delicious homemade desserts to guests.
catering service is available anywhere in the Greater Vancouver area, from
Vancouver all the way to Maple Ridge. Be it a private or corporate catering
