Foundation named for late NC political strategist

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - 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 include a Friday night party in downtown Raleigh remembering what would have been her 30th birthday. There also will be service opportunities Saturday and a rock concert that evening, followed by 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.
