To encourage healthier Halloween habits and help fight dental disease, the Delta Dental Health Theatre is hosting its annual Great Candy Exchange on Friday, Nov. 1, from 4 to 8 p.m. at the Vetta Soccerdome (Mid-County), located at 220 East Ave. in Webster Groves. Area children, families, school groups and sports teams are invited to this free evening of fun, where unopened Halloween candy can be traded in for chances to win a variety of different prize packages that encourage healthy habits and active play, including an Xbox One Day One Edition with game, valued at over $550. The Delta Dental Health Theatre aims to gather 1,500 pounds of candy that would otherwise be consumed by Trick-or-Treaters. Each exchanged pound of candy is worth one raffle ticket. Individuals can increase their chances in the prize drawings by bringing new, unopened, child-sized socks, underwear and personal hygiene items to donate to the Little Bit Foundation, which helps meet the basic needs of children in our community, or making a $5 donation to the Delta Dental Health Theatre. Prize drawings will take place at 7:30 p.m., and individuals must be present to win. The event will also feature live shows, face painting, balloon art, a photo booth, a meet and greet with St. Louis Ambush players, unlimited bounce time on four different inflatables, an educational Healthy Habits Hut, snacks, giveaways and much more. Guests are encouraged to come in costume and take part in the Costume Contest. ll candy received through this event will be sent to our troops, along with toothbrushes, through A Soldier’s Wish List.
