Candy Buy Back Program
Dr. Chan’s 11th Annual Great Halloween Candy Buy Back
Thursday, November 7th 3pm – 7pm
Dr. Curtis Chan is smiling with great expectations for his 11th 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 lbs).
Last year the drive was a sweet success collecting 8,688 pounds of candy, 168 Beanie Babies and 3,421 cards and letters for the troops. We were able to deliver over 20,000 lbs of candy thanks to businesses and grocery stores that generously donated their leftover candy as well as working with 15 schools and churches in the area.
The Buy Back will be held on Thursday, November 7th between 3pm – 7pm at Dr. Chan’s dental office located at 12835 Pointe Del Mar Way, Suite #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.
Dr. Chan encourages every one of all ages and local businesses to donate leftover candy for this great military outreach event. You will 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 during our normal business hours:
