Did you know that June 17 is National Flip Flop Day?

No? I didn’t either. But tomorrow, if you slip on a pair, you may want to head for the nearest Tropical Smoothie Cafe. The national franchise will be giving away free 24-ounce "Jetty Punch" (strawberry-banana) smoothies (ordinarily costing about $4) to the first 500 customers who show up wearing flip-flops.

The promotion is also being used to raise awareness of the chain's charity partner, Camp Sunshine, a retreat that hosts children with life-threatening illnesses, along with their families. Fundraising efforts are ongoing.

On Long Island, there are Tropical Smoothie Cafes in Huntington Station, Huntington, East Northport, Levittown, Centereach and Selden. For more information, click here.
