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

Contact Team Captain, Leah Odeneal for more information about meeting before the game and more.
NBA Player Charlie Villanueva, Detroit
Pistons, was diagnosed with Alopecia at the age of 13. He has partnered
with the National Alopecia Areata Foundation and routinely participates
in Meet & Greet events before his games.
Happy New Year and looking forward to seeing you!
Kathryn Robinson, Meet and Greet Team Captain
