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.

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.
