Rotem Dental Care Sponsoring Annual Halloween Candy Buy-back Contest

Posted on October 18, 2016 By

Last year, area children donated 257 pounds of their Halloween candy stash during Rotem Dental Care’s Halloween Candy Buy-back Contest. Rotem Dental Care, Toms River, will send the candy to our troops serving overseas AND pay you for parting with some of that Halloween candy.

Bring your Halloween candy to Rotem Dental Care, 355 Lakehurst Road, Toms River, on Tuesday, November 1 and Wednesday, November 2 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.

As part of Rotem Dental Care’s annual Halloween Candy Buy-back Contest, the dental practice will give a $1.00 a pound up to 10 lbs. per family for candy collected from Halloween trick-or-treating, and then donate the candy to our troops overseas. In addition, the child who brings in the most candy, by weight, will win a $50.00 gift card.

Individual classrooms, not schools, are also eligible to win a cash prize. One teacher from either a public or private school who collects the most Halloween candy, by weight, from students in his or her classroom and brings it to Rotem Dental Care will be eligible to win $400.00 to spend for his or her class.

This is the 12th year Dr. Rotem has sponsored his Halloween Candy Buy-back Contest. Dr. Rotem said, “Although my dental practice is for adults, I have three children so I know how much that Halloween candy means. Obviously, the less candy kids eat, the better it is for them. I started the candy buy-back program as an incentive for kids to donate some of their candy and at the same time make Halloween special for our overseas troops.”

The candy Rotem Dental Care collects will be shipped to our overseas troops through the American Recreational Military Service (ARMS).
