Great Halloween Candy Buy Back to benefit troops is Nov. 7 at Dr. Curtis Chan’s office in Del Mar

Dr. Curtis Chan is smiling with great expectations for his 5th annual Great Halloween Candy Buy Back. The Buy Back helps local children unload the Halloween candy they don’t need for a good cause. The candy is donated to troops overseas and children are given $1 per pound (up to 5 pounds). Last year the drive was a big success, collecting 3,542 pounds of candy, 271 Beanie Babies and 1,127 cards and letters for the troops.

The Buy Back will be held on Thursday, Nov. 7, between 3-7 p.m. at Dr. Chan’s new dental office located at 12835 Pointe Del Mar Way #3 in Del Mar. Children must be present and must have or make a card for the troops in order to receive their cash. Each child will leave with a free toothbrush kit, to brush away any damage from the Halloween candy they kept.

Come and personally thank a few military heroes who will be present for the event.

Dr. Chan encourages every one of all ages to donate any leftover candy to receive a raffle ticket for a chance to win an iPad mini, a professional teeth whitening and other great prizes. Candy donations will be accepted all week following Halloween.

For more information, call (858) 481-9090 or visit www.CurtisChanDDS.com.
