National Flip Flop Day is June 16 and Tropical Smoothie Cafe is helping the people of Las Vegas celebrate and raising awareness for Camp Sunshine.

Customers wearing flip flops into Tropical Smoothie Café between 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. will receive a free, limited edition Sunshine Smoothie in a 16-ounce, 20th anniversary souvenir cup. There are no strings, or in this case, shoe laces attached.

The limited edition Sunshine Smoothie, captures the taste of summer with a vitamin c-packed combination of orange, banana, orange juice, pineapple and mango.

“Bringing the community of Las Vegas together to celebrate summer and enjoy a brand new tropical smoothie is important to us," said Mike Rotondo, CEO of Tropical Smoothie Café. “For the 11th year in a row, we look forward to serving over 500,000 guests who will visit one of our cafés and celebrate alongside us on National Flip Flop Day.”

This year is Tropical Smoothie Cafe's 20th anniversary, as well as the 11th year it has celebrated National Flip Flop Day -- a one-day event that aims to raise awareness and support for Camp Sunshine, a summer camp-style retreat designed for children with life-threatening illnesses and their families to visit together. Over the past decade, Tropical Smoothie Cafe has raised more than $4 million for the camp.

The Las Vegas community is encouraged to share their experience on social media and can use the social hashtag for National Flip Flop day, #TSCflipflop.
