Happy National Flip-Flip Day!
Happy National Flip-Flip Day is observed each year on the 3rd Friday in June. The event was created by US restaurant franchise Tropical Smoothie Cafe six years ago to thank loyal customers for their support and patronage. National Flip Flop Day is an important fundraiser for Camp Sunshine, a special camp to helps children with life-threatening illness and members of their families. The camp is located near Lake Sebago, Maine, and offers much-needed respite for children and their immediate family members. Described as a “natural wonderland,” the retreat is open year round and thanks to generous donations, is totally free of charge to all families. To date, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has raised more than $1 million for Camp Sunshine. Soles4Souls and FlipFlop Wines are celebrating the weeklong event by raising awareness around the country about the important need for shoes.
As a special thanks to sandal customers who stopped by one of the 300 Tropical Smoothie Café’s in America on Friday, June 15th they received a free Jetty Punch Smoothie. You too can help out online by donating directly through Facebook
