Sahara Adams will look stunning at her school prom later this year with a new dress and beautiful long blonde hair. She is undergoing cancer treatment for leukaemia which has made her natural hair fall out. A government sub- sidy has provided a beautiful natural look- ing blonde wig with highlights. Sahara s mum San- dra Adams says her 12-year-old daughter didn t want one at first, but after her lovely locks fell out three times she got fed up and wanted to feel like a girl again. She has the prom later in the year and wanted hair for that and special occasions when she goes out, Sandra says. The hospital tried to talk her out of getting a long wig saying they get ratty and have to be maintained at $50 a pop . But when Sahara and Sandra went to the wig shop Hair Creations in Newton, Sahara knew just what she wanted. It s called a Miley and it s hot off the press, highlights and all, Sandra says. Sahara has been proudly posting pictures of her new look on her Facebook page. Sandra says it s given Sahara a real boost as she heads into her final round of intensive chemotherapy before going on a maintenance programme and start- ing school again in a few weeks. FUNDRAISER Shave for Sahara: Chef Tony Moss is urging others to lose their locks at the big shave for Sahara Adams at the Food Embassy on July 17. The big shave will also feature a car boot sale, with proceeds going to Waiheke Rotary. Well wishers still have time to register to join chef Tony Moss and friends in a charity shave at Food Embassy on July 17. All funds raised through the sponsored head shave will go to the family of Sahara Adams. The event, which runs from 10am to 2pm, will feature a big car boot sale, music and raffles, with proceeds going to Waiheke Rotary. Pick up a sponsorship form for the Big Shave at Food Embassy, opposite Placemakers. Call Barbara on 372-7197 from 1pm to 4pm to register for the car boot sale.

STONY BATTER HISTORIC RESERVE, Gun emplacement tunnel guided tours. See www.fortstonybatter.org.nz. Entry prices drop at Stardome planetarium Visiting Auckland s Star- dome Observatory and Planetarium is now cheaper, thanks to Auck- land Council s pledge to develop arts, culture and heritage, leisure, sport and entertainment venues. The additional funding has enabled Stardome to lower its admission prices from July 1. The public planet- arium has been part of the city s fabric since 1967 and runs shows every night and weekend afternoons about space, astronauts and black holes. It is a non-profit organisation that pro- vides residents, tourists and school children the opportunity to learn about astronomy and space sciences. Mayor Len Brown says: Making our regional facilities more accessible to residents and visitors is an import- ant part of what makes up the new Auckland. Stardome is one of our most loved venues and I am pleased that they can now offer the same attractions at a reduced price. The Stardome s plan- etarium shows cost $10 for adults, seniors, students and children $8, family pass $30 and pre-school $5. The Stardome Observ- atory is at 670 Manukau Rd, One Tree Hill Domain, Royal Oak.
