Treats Will Go to Local Food Pantry
HARTLAND, Wis. -- What will local residents do with all the candy trick-or-treaters bring home this Halloween? Cloud 9 Dentistry has a suggestion. The dental practice is rewarding any child who turns in a bag of candy to its new office at 3079 Village Square Dr., in Hartland, with a free movie pass to the Marcus Hillside Cinema, 2950 Hillside Dr., in Delafield. The candy collected will be donated to the Pewaukee Food Pantry.
"We just want to encourage kids to enjoy their Halloween candy in moderation," says Dr. Grant Lemke, owner at Cloud 9 Dentistry. "A little candy is okay, but ingesting mounds of it is not good for your teeth, can pack on the pounds and give your child a major sugar buzz. We want to provide an incentive for kids to set aside a little for themselves and turn in the rest to Cloud 9."
The Cloud 9 Candy Trade can turn little monsters into angels. Anyone, 17 years or under, who brings two pounds of candy or more, will receive a movie pass, while supplies last, from Sunday, Oct. 28 through Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012. The Pewaukee Food Pantry will, in turn, be able to offer moderate amounts of treats to lower income families during the holiday season.
