Big Bear, Ca, October 29, 2010, 4:00pm – Many children and adults will collect pounds of candy this Halloween weekend, which can cause cavities later on. Dr. Kristine Yoshida of Summit Dental is hosting Big Bear’s Halloween Candy Buy Back on Thursday, November 4th, from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. Bring in wrapped candy and receive $1 for every pound of candy you bring in. There is a $5 maximum, and the collected candy will be sent to Operation Gratitude, which is a non-profit organization that sends care packages to troops stationed overseas. Those wishing to participate in the Candy Buy Back can take their sugary treats to Dr. Yoshidas office, located at 596 Bonanza Trail, in Big Bear Lake. For more information call 866-0886.
