Del Mar dentist Dr. Curtis Chan is holding his 15th annual Great Halloween Candy Buy Back, helping kids unload excess Halloween candy for a great cause.
The candy is donated to troops overseas and in exchange for their donations, children are given $1 per pound (up to five pounds). The outdoor event will take place from 3-6pm in the plaza at Dr. Chan’s office. 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 and, as an exciting bonus, they will also receive a Dr. Chan Chocolate Bar with a chance to be one of five kids to win a “Golden Ticket” worth $100. Members of the community are encouraged to donate extra candy as well, which will be accepted November 1-10 during normal business hours.
