Local celebs go rainbow for fundraiser

By Kerces - 25 February 2006 3

Last night at Belconnen Mall several Canberra celebrities plus Gold Logie nominee Simon “Hotdogs” Deering lined up for hair colouring, head shaving and leg waxing to raise money for cancer research as part of Shave for a Cure (which may possibly now be called Me No Hair).

I recognised MLA Bill Stefaniak and 104.7FM host Mark Parton among the group.

Bill was getting his hair colour green, but said to raise twice as much money he would be getting it all shaved off in about a week’s time.

Mark went blue and wild and wasn’t too worried about how long it would stay that way since he is in radio (unlike the news reader from one of the commercial stations — possibly channel 10 — who thought she might have a strenuous bout of hair washing to do before work on Monday).

Mark Parton

Hotdogs seemed to be the main drawcard. I had heard nothing about his coming to town, but I imagine if you watched channel 10 or listened to 104.7 you would have. They certainly had a decent crowd wanting to know what was going on and there were girls with buckets collecting money all through the Mall.

Apologies, Mark Parton is from 106.3 but you will note the 104.7 sponsorship signs around the place which confused me.
