Flip Flops & Fashion was held Oct. 30 at Sharky's on the Pier in Venice.
Children First and its supporters took a beach day Oct. 30 for the annual Flip Flips & Fashion event.
Guests mingled in the much-needed shade beneath a tent on the shoreline outside Sharky's on the Pier. A new feature this year was the Bubble Bar, a champagne lounge that had some guests picking up drinks before lunch. The program's fashion show was emceed by co-chairwoman Krystel Beall and her husband Matt Beall and had adult and child models alike walking up and down the sandy runway.
Children First supports at-risk children and families and promotes early education in the Sarasota community.
