What Spellman does for AHEAD: Events Planner and Fundraiser
In the beginning, Karen Spellman worked for AHEAD. She designed and produced the organization’s major fundraising event. Since 1998, she has worked with AHEAD by producing events, recruiting volunteers, and promoting the organization. She’s also traveled to Tanzania as a volunteer.
