BEACHWOOD, Ohio -- It's been three years since Aliza Sherman was murdered in downtown Cleveland, and this Mother's Day her children decided to honor her memory by hosting a benefit brunch.

"We're very excited. We sold out of our tickets and we're doing a brunch obviously for my mom to raise money for the 'Harboring for Hope' fund. It offers families who have failed one round of IVF another chance at having their miracle baby," explained Aliza's daughter, Jennifer Sherman.

She thought this would be a fitting tribute for her mother, who was an IVF nurse for the Cleveland Clinic.

"This was her greatest passion. Her job was never considered work to her. It was something she loved truly, probably more than anything else and she thought motherhood was the greatest gift of all," said Jennifer. "She had such passion for other women becoming mothers, so we thought what better way to honor her on Mother's Day then to help other women become mothers."

Aliza's life came to a tragic end on March 24, 2013. She was heading into her attorney's office downtown when she was stabbed to death. Police are still looking for her killer.

"We're going strong. We won't give up until we see that she gets the justice that she deserves and we're in it for the long haul, no matter how long it takes," said Jennifer.
