Tropical Smoothie Cafe Spreads Sunshine in Las Vegas on National Flip Flop Day – June 18
More than 10,000 FREE Jetty Punch smoothies will be given away in fundraising effort for Camp Sunshine
Flip flop season has officially arrived. All 20 Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations in Las Vegas welcome the start of the 2010 summer season with its fourth annual National Flip Flop Day celebration. This year also marks Tropical Smoothie Cafe’s third annual partnership with Camp Sunshine to raise funds to send children with life-threatening illness and their families to the camp for a week of rest, relaxation, plus medical counseling and much-needed emotional support.
From June 1 to June 30, 2010, Tropical Smoothie Cafe invites customers to contribute to the Camp Sunshine fundraising effort through the purchase of $1 paper flip flops, which are posted throughout the store. Then on June 18, the first 500 customers who visit each of the 20 Las Vegas locations wearing flip flop sandals will receive a free 24-oz. Jetty Punch™ smoothie.
“There is no better way for us to celebrate our fourth annual summer kick-off day than to partner with an organization that helps children and their families who truly need an escape,” said Dina Mitchell Area Developer/Marketing Director for Tropical Smoothie Cafe. “Camp Sunshine is an exceptional group of professionals and volunteers who provide a positive experience for everyone involved. We are proud and honored to again support them in such a wonderful and worthy mission.”
Located in Casco, Maine, along Sebago Lake, Camp Sunshine provides a welcome retreat for children and their families coping with such life-threatening illnesses as cancer, kidney disease and lupus. Since 1984, Camp Sunshine has offered recreational, medical and counseling services at no cost to more than 16,000 individuals from diverse cultural and economic backgrounds.
Funds raised from June 1-30, 2010 at Tropical Smoothie Cafe will be used to sponsor a family or families residing across the US. In addition, the funds will be used to cover family travels to and from Camp Sunshine for Tropical Smoothie Cafe week, August 2-6, 2010, as well as camp scholarships and construction and capital improvements of the camp.
