The Building Industry Association of the northeastern Pa. recently chose the Center for Cancer Wellness, Candy's Place to receive a part of the proceeds from its annual Home Expo, to be held March 1 through 3 at the Kingston Armory in Kingston.

Sponsored by Verizon Wireless, the expo features attractions for builders, remodelers, suppliers, and financial services from Northeastern Pennsylvania. This year will feature a wine-tasting event on March 2 from seven local wineries. In addition, theme baskets that have been donated by area businesses will be raffled off. A Chinese auction of a waterfall display that donated by Edwards Landscaping will be held throughout the weekend.

The proceeds from the baskets and auction as well as a portion of the proceeds from the wine-testing event will benefit the programs and services at Candy's Place, a non-profit cancer resource and wellness center located in Forty Fort.

We are deeply honored to be chosen by the BIA for this year's expo, said Nicole Farber, managing director of Candy's Place. We are so blessed to have our local builders and businesses to be working beside us in an effort to build hope within this community. Thank you, thank you.

Tickets for the wine tasting event and basket raffle tickets are currently on sale. To purchase one or to donate a basket to the expo, call the BIA office at 287.3331 or Candy's Place at 714.8800.
