The National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF) is the world center for those dedicated affected by alopecia areata.

This common but very challenging and capricious disease affects approximately 2 percent of the population overall, including more than 5 million people in the United States alone.

status, both at work and at school.

The Gwinnett Braves Alopecia Areata Awareness Night will feature a member of the Georgia support group singing the national anthem before the game. Support group member, Aaron Williams, will throw out the first pitch as well as have an awareness table in the concourse area. Elite 100 Sports has donated a custom NAAF wood bat that will be signed by players and coaches, to be raffled off during the game to help raise funds, as well as Aaron’s book Southern Mayhem will be given out for each $10 donation made. Tickets are $12 to the game, so come show your support for the home town team as they raise funds to help find a cure and be sure to stay after the game for fireworks. The first 100 tickets purchased will receive a NAAF awareness baseball bracelet.

Proceeds from the event are being raised on behalf of NAAF. The Foundation provides reliable publications, a support network of families, education conferences for families, a web site, scholarship, a research program, and more.

NAAF’s mission is to encourage and fund medical research for better treatment and ultimate cure, provide support and resources for those with the condition, and raise public consciousness of the disease.
