FACE PAINTING, DOOR PRIZES, A RADIO PERSONALITY AND MORE.
(DRS. WARREN AND AMIRA WOODRUFF ARE NOW AVAILABLE FOR INTERVIEWS.)
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (West Bloomfield, MI) – October 21, 2013) — Orchard Maple Family Dental expands its outreach, partnering with local businesses to offer a memorable Halloween Buyback event for every member of the family November 1 and 2. Face painting, door prizes and even Dr. William Woodruff's favorite radio personality will greet guests as they stop by to drop off their candy for U.S. soldiers serving overseas in conjunction with Operation Gratitude (www.operationgratitude.com).
"We are thrilled that the neighboring businesses have shown such generous support, " said Dr. Warren Woodruff, general dentist at OMFD and event marketing director. "This year's growing sponsor list includes Tapper's Diamonds and Fine Jewelry, Powerhouse Gym West Bloomfield, Whole Foods West Bloomfield, Face Flair, Noodles & Company and Zoe's House of Pancakes."
In sync with the OMFD philosophy of aligning good nutrition with optimum dental care, Whole Foods West Bloomfield will kick off the festivities on Friday, November 1, providing healthy snacks for guests to enjoy as they wait in line and weigh their candy contributions. Their generosity does not end there. A raffle will take place on Saturday, November 2, of which Whole Foods West Bloomfield has contributed multiple items.
For all of the mothers accompanying trick-or-treaters, Tapper's Diamonds and Fine Jewelry is raffling silver disc earrings valued at $99. With hopes of including all of the fathers and brothers in attendance, Zoe's House of Pancakes is providing breakfast on a first-come, first-serve basis to Halloween Buyback supporters onsite at OMFD starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, November 2nd.
After enjoying all of the pancakes and french toast (Zoe's House of Pancake's), one might feel pressured to exercise off those calories. For figure-conscious attendees, Powerhouse Gym West Bloomfield is raffling off a three-month membership valued at $119. And for all of the kids and young at heart in attendance, Face Flair is offering their best designs for everyone to go home happy.
There is still time to contribute to the cause. "We’re currently seeking additional sponsors to cover the candy shipping and weighing costs, which exceeded $500 last year," said Dr. Amira May Woodruff, general dentist at OMFD and event sponsorship coordinator.
Interested companies are encouraged to call or e-mail Dr. May Woodruff directly for sponsorship details. The sponsorship deadline is Friday, October 25.
