Port St Lucie, Florida, June 1st, 2012 – As summer officially kicks off, Tropical Smoothie Café is gearing up for their official holiday, National Flip Flop Day, on June 15. Each year, the gourmet smoothie and sandwich chain hands out its signature smoothie, the Jetty Punch, to customers who come into cafes sporting flip flops. This year, Tropical Smoothie Café will give out 24-oz smoothies from 2-7 pm.
Tropical Smoothie Café created National Flip Flop Day six years ago to raise money for its national charity partner, Camp Sunshine, the only retreat in the nation whose mission is focused solely on addressing the effects of a life-threatening illness on every member of the immediate family -- the child, the parents, and the siblings. To date, Tropical Smoothie Café has raised more than $1 million for Camp Sunshine.
Now through National Flip Flop Day on June 15, customers can make a difference by visiting their local Tropical Smoothie Café located in the Treasure Coast and donating money, or by purchasing a specially designed key fob, which includes a 10 percent discount on future purchases. They can also help out online by donating directly through www.nationalflipflopday.com, Facebook causes at https://www.causes.com/
“National 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,” said Greg Watkins, Area Developer, for Tropical Smoothie Café in St. Lucie/Indian River Counties."

National Flip Flop Day
In 2008, Tropical Smoothie Café joined fundraising efforts with its national charity partner Camp Sunshine, which established a retreat in Casco, Maine approximately 28 years ago for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families from around the nation. Tropical Smoothie Café created the holiday, National Flip Flop Day, on the third Friday of each June to raise awareness for Camp Sunshine. Loyal Tropical Smoothie Café customers are rewarded with a free Jetty Punch on this day with all donations received benefiting Tropical Smoothie Café’s national charity partner. To date, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has donated more than $1 million to Camp Sunshine. Nationwide, Tropical Smoothie’s franchisees execute community fundraising events prior to National Flip Flop Day and donations are collected year-round at www.NationalFlipFlopDay.com.
