Candy sale benefits South Lake Tahoe Cancer League

Once a year, usually from mid-November through Christmas Eve, the South Lake Tahoe Cancer League sells candy produced by South Lake Tahoe Chocolate Factory and See’s Candy, Inc.

For the past few years, the candy store has been located at Raley’s Shopping Center at the “Y.” This year, it will be at 2358 Lake Tahoe Blvd., the small building adjacent to the old Longs Drugs building, which now is Grocery Outlet.

Thursday is the opening day, and the hours for the candy sale will be from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. seven days a week.

“If you know what you want, call ahead, and we will have your order ready when you come in. If not, please feel free to come in and browse around as long as you need,” said Jeanne Banagan, Cancer League publicity chair. “We have new items this year, including a larger selection of smaller items.”

This is South Lake Tahoe Cancer League’s biggest fundraiser of the year. All the money generated is allocated to patients through monetary grants and/or transportation to medical facilities. The only requirement is that the patient live in the South Lake Tahoe Basin and is under active, current medical treatment.

For more information and to place an advance candy order, call (530) 573-1703.
