Attention trick-or-treaters: Red Hill Orthodontics is back with their 10th annual Candy Buy Back. Bring in your extra Halloween candy, and the good doctors will pay you in cold, hard cash! Talk about a sweet way to make you smile.

"Our Candy Buy Back is a win-win for everyone involved," says Red Hill's Dr. Eslambolchi. "We typically see a lot of broken brackets right after Halloween, so this is a good way to encourage kids to share their candy, help a good cause and eat less sugar at the same time."

Here's how it works: For every pound of wrapped candy you bring in, Red Hill will give you $2! Plus, they'll also donate the candy, along with another $1 per pound, to City Kidz, a charity that inspires low-income kids to dream big.

"Hamilton has one of the highest rates of child poverty in Canada," says Red Hill's Dr. Rahimi, "so raising awareness about the charity is a terrific way for our practice to give back to the city."

Last year, Red Hill collected more than 100 pounds of candy and donated $250 to City Kidz. This year, they're hoping to double those efforts by getting the neighbourhood schools involved, too. In addition to $1 per pound of candy (up to $100), the school that brings in the most candy will get an additional $100 prize!

Stop by the Queenston or Upper James offices weekdays on Nov. 1 to Nov. 7, 2013 from 8:30am to 5pm. And remember, your chewy, sticky, hard-candies have to be wrapped.
