Dr. Tisseron't Candy Butback netted more than a half-ton of candy/Photo courtesy of Astrid TisserontIf you are facing a Halloween candy overload next week, here is a way to unload some, give back, have some fun and even earn a little money.

Reston orthodontist Stephan Tisseront is holding his annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back event on Monday from 12 to 4 p.m.

If you bring leftover candy to the event, $1 per pound will be donated to Children’s National Medical Center; $1 per pound will be given back to the candy donor; and all candy will be sent to U.S. military troops overseas.

This is the 10th annual post Halloween candy buy-back at Dr. Tisseront’s office.

Since Monday is a school holiday, there will also be carnival like fun for all ages, including Hot Apple Cider, Temporary Tattoos, Balloons, and a raffle for prize at 3:45 p.m.

Tisseront Orthodontics is located at 11720 Plaza America Dr. The event will be outside, in the plaza in front of the office.

    Help me get this…buy candy, hand out to kids. Drive to office party where kids sell back candy and $ goes to charity and candy to service members….for ten years? Let’s find a better way so everyone wins. The office, the charity, service members’ health and kids are entertained (Sans tattoos).

      Funny. I hadn’t considered the silliness of the entire thing in that way. Mostly when I see these in my head I’m thinking, “Save your teeth! Ruin someone else’s by giving your candy to them!”

      Though I suppose it is a good way to unload all the candy your kid isn’t going to eat anyway. (Necco wafers, Smarties and the like — I’m talkin’ to you.)
