LIVINGSTON, NJ — Friday, June 15, 2018 is National Flip Flop Day, created by Tropical Smoothie Cafe to celebrate their customers and kick-off their fundraising for Camp Sunshine in Casco, Maine.
From 2 to 7 p.m. June 15, get a free limited-edition Sunshine Smoothie when you wear flip flops to any of the 600-plus locations including the Livingston café!
No coupon or purchase is needed to get the free special smoothie, which is a combination of orange, banana, pineapple and mango.
The chain's annual National Flip Flop Day serves as a fundraiser for Camp Sunshine, a retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families located in Maine.
“We started National Flip Flop Day as a fun summer event, but the ultimate goal is much greater than free smoothies,” said Mike Rotondo, Tropical Smoothie's chief executive officer, in a statement. “We’re raising money to help families who are facing life’s worst circumstances.”
Since 2007, the fundraiser has raised more than $5.3 million for the camp, enough for more than 2,100 families to attend the camp for free. This year's goal is to raise $1 million.
Customers can honor Flip Flop day and make a donation to Camp Sunshine at the Café. The donations are optional, but it is a really great cause to support.
