Flip flops help raise more than chump change for Fort Trust



Hudson’s Bay — Flip flops were the footwear of choice at Flip Flops and Lemon Drops, an Aug. 11 fundraiser for the Fort Vancouver National Trust.

Held in conjunction with the Energy Events Cosmo 7K run, the two events raised $15,800 for the Trust.

Most attendees, who also ran the 7K, enjoyed lemon drops, a Beaches-catered dinner, foot and back massages from Utopia Salon & Day Spa and live music on the grounds of the O. O. Howard House at the Fort Vancouver National Site.

Flip Flops & Lemon Drops was presented by Columbia Credit Union and sponsored by Martel Wealth Advisors, The Body Shop and Alpine Auto Body.
