YORKTOWN, Va.- Today is National Flip Flop Day, wear your flip flops to a Tropical Smoothie near you and get a free smoothie.

Tropical Smoothie Cafe will give customers free “Sunshine Smoothies” from 2 to 7 p.m. on June 15 as part of its effort to raise $1 million for Camp Sunshine.

A retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families in Casco, Maine.

During its annual National Flip Flop Day event, customers who wear flip flops to any Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations will receive a free Sunshine Smoothie,  a mix of mangos, bananas, oranges and pineapple.

In exchange, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is encouraging customers to donate to Camp Sunshine — a cost-free, year-round retreat where families can reconnect, re energize and restore hope for what lies ahead.

Since launching National Flip Flop Day in 2007, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has donated $5.3 million to Camp Sunshine  enough for more than 2,100 families to attend for free.

This year, Tropical Smoothie Cafe is pushing to raise $1 million, which would help send families to Camp and assist with travel expenses.
