Alina’s Light Headlines

To our wonderful supporters,

Thank you for yet another successful event. 2020 has been a year of uncertainty for all of us, and we had to make the difficult decision to cancel our annual Walk for Love due to Covid-19 precautions, However, with your support, we raised $6500.00 from our virtual concert. These funds allow us to continue with our mission to make a difference in Alina’s memory. Without you, it wouldn’t be possible. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Congratulations to all of our raffle winners! Visit our Facebook page to see who won our wonderful prizes!

ALINA’S DOLLS is designed as a powerful memorial for victims of domestic violence.

While we are looking for a permanent home for the project, we are beginning to work with friends and families of the domestic violence victims to create dolls which will serve as memorials for their loved ones, and remind the rest of us that we have the power to change the world we live in.

Donation Made to Local Women’s Shelter

The pandemic has reminded us all of the importance of kindness. Today, in Alina’s memory, we donated $1000 and provided childcare supplies for mothers in need at Women’s Center & Shelter of Greater Pittsburgh, a local domestic violence shelter. We are so grateful to be able to provide light for others in such a dark and uncertain time.

About Alina’s Light

Alina’s Light is a charitable organization established in honor of Alina Sheykhet, whose life was tragically taken in a senseless act of violence in October of 2017.  Alina was passionate about theater and performing arts, and she loved children and animals.  The mission of Alina’s Light is to provide scholarship funding to students of Alina’s former high school who share her passion for performing arts, as well as to raise funds for organizations that benefit children and animals.

Alina was loved beyond words and brought light into the lives of many.  Her spirit remains with us, and she will live on through our hearts, memories, and stories.  Alina will always guide and inspire us.
