New Orleans Pelicans vs Detroit Pistons

Charlie's Angels Meet and Greet Opportunity
December 11, 2013
New Orleans Pelicans vs. Detroit Pistons

Charlie Villanueva of the Detroit Pistons is doing a Meet and Greet with children who have alopecia areata before the Pistons play the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, December 11, at New Orleans Arena.  The effect of meeting a sports hero who shares the same autoimmune disease is immediate for these kids, boosting their self-esteem by reminding them they’re as good as any other boy or girl.  Too often a child with alopecia areata is bullied and the chance to meet Charlie Villanueva, to learn from his example, is an invaluable experience.

Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you!
