New Hartford, NY (WIBX) – One New Hartford family wants you to keep the memory of Alexandra Kogut alive, and they’re asking you to pinkie promise.

The Whitney Family is asking everyone – male and female – to take a stand against domestic violence by painting their fingernails purple this month, especially their pinkies.

They are encouraging the community to post their “Purple Pinkie” photos on Facebook on Alex’s memorial page.

In a written statement family spokesperson Sandra Whitney says that not only is purple the symbolic color of Domestic Violence Awareness, but it was also Alex’s favorite color. “We have more strength in our little fingers than the worst thing that can come at us…Inner strength is the true measure of a person.”

The community has rallied to show its support for Domestic Violence Awareness. Alex Kogut was killed in her dorm room at SUNY Brockport last week. Her boyfriend, 21-year old Clayton Whittemore, was arrested in connection with her murder.
