The First Day of Summer, Free Smoothies! at Tropical Smoothie Cafe
On Saturday, June 21st, the Tropical Smoothie Cafe had a celebration for the first day of summer. Rod, the owner, invited me as Mrs. Missoula America 2008 to come and take part in the promotion. But this wasn't just a promotion...it was a fundraiser for Elizabeth Larson. She's a tiny little thing that is fighting cancer.
The Larson Family.
Mrs. Missoula with Jerry the Gorilla and his banana friend:-D They were out pulling in people from the community to play some of the games at the event while I served smoothies.
Here's Elizabeth, some of her family and friends, Rod, and me in the hot sunshine!
People all over Missoula had the chance to get a free smoothie with no strings attached and the opportunity to support a weary family to go to Sunshine Camp for a week in Maine. I felt very honored to be a part of this fun day, but also really proud of the people in my town for all the love they pour out on others in need. The hearts here are full of graciousness and generosity.
