Date:3/13/2008

SCARBOROUGH, N.Y., March 13 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bald Girls Do Lunch, Inc. is bringing women with alopecia areata together for the first time in northern California. Strikingly different from a traditional support group, the non-profit's dining out format combines discussions and camaraderie with inspiration and public awareness. Founder and president, Thea Chassin, bald for over 10 years, meets women in cities across the country.
