Dr. Curtis Chan is holding his sixth annual Great Halloween Candy Buy Back on Nov. 6. 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 collect $1 per pound (up to 5 pounds).
Last year’s drive collected 3,542 pounds of candy, 271 Beanie Babies and 1,127 cards and letters for the troops. This year’s Buy Back will be held from 3-7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 6, at Chan’s dental office, 12835 Pointe Del Mar Way, No. 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. Come and personally thank a few military heroes who will be present for the event. Also, anyone can donate 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 after Halloween. Call 858-481-9090 or visit www.CurtisChanDDS.com.
