A local dentist wants to buy back all the Halloween candy that has been passed out.
Wagner Dental is offering a $1 for every pound of Halloween candy children bring in. They also get a ticket for a raffle prize. The prizes include an iPod shuffle, gift certificates and a Sonicare toothbrush. The buyback is from 3:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday at Wagner Dental offices, 2045 Village Circle, near the Summerlin Library.
The candy will not be destroyed. Instead it will be donated to U.S. troops through special care packages organized by Operation Gratitude. Last year, the dental office donated 550 pounds of Halloween candy to the troops. Organizers hope to collect more than 600 pounds this year.
