RALEIGH, N.C. -

Friends of a North Carolina Democratic strategist fatally stabbed in her home six months ago are gathering this weekend to kick off a foundation named in her memory.

Events for the Jamie Kirk Hahn Foundation included a Friday night party in downtown Raleigh remembering what would have been her 30th birthday. On Saturday more than 100 volunteers worked at the inter-faith food shuttle, working on construction projects, planting produce, and packaging fresh produce to deliver to those in need. A rock concert followed Saturday evening, and they've also planned a Sunday brunch.

Foundation leaders want the organization to identify, mentor and train young leaders interested in working at nonprofits, socially-minded businesses or in public service.

Hahn died April 24, two days after she was attacked in Raleigh. Her husband was also stabbed but survived. The best man at the couple's wedding was charged with murder and other crimes. Police haven't disclosed a possible motive.

Watch the video above to see how friends and family are turning a tragedy into triumph.
