E-T Staff Report

Local dentist Dr. Stephen LaDuque and his team are asking the public to help them get candy off the streets - while assisting three good causes.

For every pound of candy delivered to his office until Nov. 10, LaDuque will donate $5 to Cross Timber’s Pregnancy Care Center, Robyn Ballew and a scholarship for a local senior. Each will receive a maximum of $500.

“We are trying to have a little fun while raising funds for three entities we care about,” LaDuque said. “Cross Timbers Pregnancy Care Center has done great things in this community to support thousands of young women at a critical time in their lives. Robyn Ballew is a patient and a friend that is going on a mission trip to Ethiopia. Those trips can be pricey, but the calling and need is amazing.  The scholarship is to support a local senior who intends on going into the health profession.”

LaDuque’s office, Dental Excellence of Stephenville, is located at 132 Alexander Road behind Chihuahua’s. For more information, call (254) 965-2777.
