Cash for Candy
Local dentist Dr. Byron wants your candy, and he’s willing to pay you for it, but it’s for a great cause. The good doctor is holding his annual “Cash for Candy” drive Nov. 1-4. Dr. Sansom will pay $1 for every pound of candy brought to his office, at 170 Mountain Boulevard, during those days.
The candy will be shipped to our troops serving overseas. For more info, call 760.934.3730. Dr. Sansom wishes everyone a safe and Happy Halloween!
