Band Together was formed in the wake of 9/11, by a handful of entrepreneurial friends seeking a way to give back in a time of national tragedy. With a shared love of music and volunteerism, they organized and staged a benefit concert in just a few weeks and raised money for first responders in New York City and Washington, D.C. In the 12 years since, Band Together turned its focus to the Triangle Area in North Carolina, raising nearly $3 million for local nonprofits.
From 2012-2018, Charles led communications and marketing for Band Together – first as a volunteer and eventually as a sponsor, providing more than $30,000 of in-kind support ranging from communications strategy, social media, web and advertising services, and managing an amazing team of volunteers.
