ASK HEATHER: Is there still an Aaliyah Memorial Event Going On Today?

Yes, and how befitting to ask. I knew Aaliyah before she passed and she has always been a supporter of Breast Cancer prevention and reached out to  several charities. This invitation was in my inbox today and while I won’t be able to make it this evening as an avid supporter  of her music and genuine personality toward so many people who knew her I pass on her legacy. Rest in peace Aaliyah.  


Aaliyah Memorial Fund
In her precious 22 years, Aaliyah achieved more than many do in several lifetimes…
An illuminating factor was her conviction to touch and help others. The Aaliyah Memorial Fund was created as a vehicle whereby her fans, friends, and family can contribute to and support causes that Aaliyah found important. The Aaliyah Memorial Fund was started in 2001.
For Aaliyah and her comrades that left us August 25th, 2001, there is much we can do as a benevolent community to keep Aaliyah’s dream & legacy alive. With your contribution, research and hope for cures will continue forward with your help in Aaliyah’s name.
The beneficiaries have included since 2001 the Alzheimer’s Association of Los Angeles, the Jonsson Cancer Center Foundation, the National Alzheimer’s Association, the Step Up Women’s Network, the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, the Detroit School of the Arts, the Harlem Breast Cancer Center, the Revlon Breast Cancer Walk NYC, the Sacred Heart Parish, and the Jenna Druck Foundation.
If donating by check or money order, please make payable to “Aaliyah Memorial Fund” and please mail to:
Aaliyah Memorial Fund
331 West 57th Street, #281
New York, NY 10019

(Even donating just $1 or $5 is very helpful and very meaningful.
Whatever can be offered is greatly appreciated.)
With Aaliyah, Keeth, Christopher, Eric, Doug, Gina, Scott, Anthony and Luis In Our Hearts!

Central Park Conservancy and New York City have dedicated a Weeping Willow tree to our beloved Aaliyah on the pond in central park. It is located right next to Strawberry Fields. (Please see map below.) Those who may not be able to make the trip up to Ferncliff can visit and leave flowers, notes, etc.   This Weeping Willow tree was endowed in memory of Aaliyah by her family. The tree is located on the shoreline of the Lake in the area known as Cherry Hill. This is a young tree and will grow to be a delicate, yet magnificent, tree…
