If you have had your fill of Halloween candy by now, Dr. William Nguyen, DDS, located at 30231 Golden Lantern St., in Laguna Niguel is offering his annual "Candy Buy-Back" event from 3-6 p.m. Thursday only.
Show up with any unwanted candy and you will receive $1 per pound; maximum 5 pounds.
Now in its 12th year, the event is always a hit, and kids of all ages stop by to turn in their sweet treats.
According to Helene Meyers, office manager, last year Nguyen doled out more than $300 to kids.
"We always have a good turn out," Meyers said. "He does this mostly for the kids who wear braces because they can't eat the sticky, or chewy types of candy. However, we do open up the buy-back to everyone. No child should have all that candy any way."
The office is also making a donation to the Wounded Warrior project and for the past 2 years, it donated funds to Operation Gratitude.
"It's a fun event and everyone has a good time," she said. "We have a scale and people always come armed with what they don't want or can't eat."
