Disney On Ice presents “Dare To Dream,” a production featuring the golden-haired princess Rapunzel from Disney’s film “Tangled,” is coming to the Central Valley at the end of the month.

In honor of the show, Disney On Ice is asking the community to participate in a hair donation campaign to benefit children suffering from medically related hair loss.

Those who can spare at least 10 inches of their hair, either braided or in a ponytail, are asked to donate it to the Pink Hearts Fund, which will provide customized human hair replacements and care kits at no cost to nearly 200 children and more than 100 adults this year. Many of the children receiving hair replacements are patients of Children’s Hospital Central California, organizers said.

The first 25 hair donors to schedule an appointment at Planet Hair salon in Fresno will receive a princess crown with jewels and an invitation to an exclusive meet and greet with Rapunzel on opening night of “Dare to Dream” They also will receive two free tickets to the show, which will open Jan. 30 at the Selland Arena in Fresno...
