Toms River Girls Wins Cash for Candy Contest

Posted on November 30, 2012 By

It’s the Halloween monster no one will ever forget! In spite of the damage super storm Sandy inflicted preventing most of the customary Halloween Trick or Treating, Kaila Guzzo, Toms River, managed to collect Halloween candy and donate seven pounds of it in Dr. Ron Rotem’s eighth annual Halloween Candy Buy-back Contest. For being the individual who brought in the most Halloween candy, Kaila won $50.00.

Since no public or private schools were able to participate in this year’s Candy Buy-back Contest, Dr. Rotem is also donating $500.00 to the Toms River Regional Schools Hurricane Relief Fund.

Although Dr. Rotem’s practice at 355 Lakehurst Road, Toms River, focuses on cosmetic dentistry and conscious sedation for adults only, he began his annual Halloween Candy Buy-back program for children and schools eight years ago as an incentive to save everyone’s teeth from decay, and instill a sense of civic duty and community involvement by sending the candy to our troops.

Dr. Rotem will have the candy shipped to our overseas troops through Ronnie Miccuilla from American Recreational Military Service (ARMS).

In contrast, last year, Dr. Rotem collected 460 lbs of candy, which was shipped to our troops through the efforts of the Toms River Armory and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) Local 400, Wall Township.

For further information, call Dr. Rotem’s office at 732-341-8500.

Dr. Rotem was graduated from NYU College of Dentistry in 1991.  His practice focuses on cosmetic dentistry and conscious sedation for adults only. Dr. Rotem belongs to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. He is affiliated with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, NJ Chapter of the Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the Dental Organization of Conscious Sedation, the International College of Cranial Mandibular Orthopedics, the American Dental Association, the New Jersey Dental Association, Monmouth/Ocean Dental Society, and the Academy of General Dentistry.  Dr. Rotem is an active member of the Crown Council.  He is also a member of the Jersey Shore Business Network, Toms River, and the Toms River Chapter of Toastmasters.
