Fancy fall footwear is tempting us from every store window, but it's not time to put those flip-flops away just yet.

News 12 anchor and fashionista Elisa DiStefano and former Hofstra basketball head coach Mo Cassara are hosting the Sneakers & Sandals Beach Ball at Buoy Bar in Point Lookout Thursday night, giving Long Islanders the chance to enjoy summer with their toes in the sand one more time while supporting two great causes.

Guests will sip unlimited beer, wine and cocktails, enjoy light bites and live music and catch a sunset over Reynolds Channel. Tickets are $60 for one person or $100 for two, and proceeds benefit The American Cancer Society's Coaches vs. Cancer program and the Mohawk Avenue Saint Foundation, which helps victims of disasters like superstorm Sandy rebuild their lives.

There will also be a chance to win designer shoes (including a pair of Jimmy Choo's), handbags, sunglasses, a surfboard and more, and every guest will get a gift bag filled with local treats. Space is limited, and you must be 21 or older.

To reserve a spot, contact The American Cancer Society's Joy DeDonato at joy.dedonato@cancer.org or 631-300-3143. Learn more about the event at Facebook.com/SneakersandSandals.
