Some might accuse Becky Wardlow, Sycamore, of going a bit overboard for Halloween 2011. She’s already gave away a ton of candy and it’s not Halloween yet. As one of ten semi-finalists from 2,500 entries, Wardlow won the grand prize of a ton of candy from The Hershey Company in a Walgreens “Ton of Fun” Facebook promotion.
Wardlow beat out the competition with a grand total of more than 1,800 likes from local Facebook users. The candy was delivered to her house this Thursday. Fear not that Becky is now suffering from a chocolate overdose.
Gracie tried to score some of the sweet stuff for a local senior center.
In an hour and a half the candy was gone because Wardlow donated her winnings to a variety of local community organizations, including YMCA Spooky Halloween Party at NIU Convocation Center, Discover Sycamore, Sycamore Lions Club, Shabbona and Sycamore Fire Departments, Meals on Wheels, Feed ‘Em Soup Community Project in DeKalb County and others.
