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
week following Halloween.
