As summer kicks off, Tropical Smoothie CafÃ© is gearing up for their official holiday, National Flip Flop Day, June 15. Each year, the smoothie and sandwich chain hands out its signature smoothie, the Jetty Punch, to customers who come into cafes wearing flip flops. This year, Tropical Smoothie CafÃ© will give out 24-ounce smoothies from 2-7 p.m.
Tropical Smoothie CafÃ© created National Flip Flop Day six years ago to raise money for its national charity partner, Camp Sunshine, a retreat whose mission is focused solely on addressing the effects of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediate family. To date, Tropical Smoothie CafÃ© has raised more than $1 million for Camp Sunshine.
â€œNational Flip Flop Day is about giving back to our customers for their generosity in helping to bring a little bit of hope, happiness and healing to these children and their families facing life-threatening illnesses,â€ said Mike Rotondo, COO, Tropical Smoothie CafÃ©.
