Charlene, or simpy "Bemis" as she's more commonly referred to by us, is a childhood friend of Adam's, getting into mischief together for a couple decades! Charlene has worked in the non-profit event and fundraising world for over 15 years. From managing volunteer committees and coordinating road races, galas, and marathon teams for the American Heart Association, to organizing professional development conferences and trainings for special education teachers all around the country. In 2009 she and Adam planned the first ever "Ramble" together, and thus the idea to start Adam's own non-profit organization was sparked! In 2011 RallySound was born and Bemis has served as the Director of Operations & Events ever since, working alongside the band on countless philanthropic projects and events!
Charlene is a passionate activist and volunteer as well, dedicating her time to local homeless shelters, veterans groups, fundraising events, and living at a home for orphaned children in Uganda for several months. She has raised over $35K personally in honor of her father who suffered a devastating stroke, and completed two full- and three half-marathons in Hawaii. She has two little nephews whom she adores more than anyone in this world, a passion for travel, Boston sports, Tom Brady, whiskey, cooking, live music, and lives in South Boston with her little 9 year-old puggle, Maui.
You'll find her kicking around at many of our shows. If you have an event you want to organize to support a cause you care about, please find her and say hello! She'd love to meet you!
