Second Annual Christmas Tree Lane Fundraiser Benefiting The Eli Home for Abused Children Lights Up Lobby of the Hilton Anaheim

November 29, 2012

Nonprofit organization fighting to keep its doors open hosts holiday event to raise funds to meet looming December 31 deadline

ANAHEIM, Calif. – November 28, 2012 – Organizers of the Second Annual Christmas Tree Lane fundraiser to benefit The Eli Home for Abused Children, a 29-year-old Anaheim-based nonprofit, are hoping the sale of professionally decorated artificial Christmas trees will help raise $200,000 by year-end so the charity can continue serving families in need.

The fundraiser is the result of a renewed partnership announced today between The Eli Home and the Hilton Anaheim, Orange County’s largest full-service hotel, which brought the holiday promotional concept to the nonprofit last year.

Sponsored by local partners, such as the Anaheim / Orange County Visitor’s Convention Bureau, The Anaheim Garden Walk, Enterprise-Rent-a-Car and the Hilton Anaheim to name a few, the trees are currently on display in the hotel’s lobby, but will be adorning homes and businesses after the organization’s Black and White Holiday Ball on December 6.

“I am pleased to support the great work of The Eli Home of Anaheim,” says Hilton Anaheim general manager Shaun Robinson. “The Hilton Anaheim places a strong priority on helping our community organizations that benefit children in need and we will continue to do so for as long as our doors are open.”

“The Eli Home is grateful for the wonderful partnership of the Hilton Anaheim.,” says The Eli Home for Abused Children executive director, Lorri Galloway. “Without the caring commitment of such generous supporters, our work could not continue.”

Available for purchase via an online auction and through bids placed at the hotel via computer kiosks, the Christmas trees are lighted, decorated. Some even come with $100 gift certificates to Anaheim White House Bistro, McCormack’s & Schmitt’s, Morton’s Steakhouse, Ruth Chris, the Cheesecake Factory, and many more. All trees will be delivered to their final locations early December.

OC Forever Summer Artist Search Culminates with Big City Celebration!

October 11, 2011

 Hilton Anaheim recently celebrated the end of the OC Forever Summer Artist Search with a huge soiree to unveil the art that now enhances the walls of our recently renovated pool area of our hotel.

After months of searching with the help of our friends at MUZEO for artists who conveyed the OC Forever Summer  theme through their renderings,  three incredibly talented artists were chosen and immediately got to work on what is today, one-of-a-kind works of art on the walls of our hotel pool area! A special thanks goes out to our friends at the Orange County Tourism Council for coming up with such a great tagline to represent our community.

The unveiling event was a huge success as the city of Anaheim came out in droves to support the hotel’s community involvement in the arts including Anaheim’s very own, Mayor Tom Tait who received a self portrait painted by one of the winners.

The event also featured a performance from Battle of The Dance which was the perfect compliment to a night dedicated to the Arts!

Come visit Hilton Anaheim and see these works of art for yourself!

The Eli Home for Abused Children Honors Hilton Anaheim with the Cariño Award at the Annual Caribbean Midsummer Night Fundraiser

July 26, 2011

The event, hosted by The Palms Casino -a Maloof Casino & Resort- was filled with excitement as over 300 guests poured into the Hilton Anaheim to celebrate the outstanding community support that this organization has provided women and children for over 25 years.

The evening kicked off with a bang as a silent auction was displayed in the foyer of the California Grand Ballroom while  a live reggae band played, delicious food was served and beautiful Hawaiian style necklaces were given to all the ladies in attendance and beaded lays were given to all the men!

Following the opening festivities was the speech of Palms Hotel owner, George Maloof who was in town to thank Eli Home for being a sanctuary to many in the Orange County area and to say a few words about the Sacramento Kings and their possible move to Anaheim.

Needless to say, everyone listened intently in the hopes to hear Mr. Maloof share some good news. Unfortunately, all the room heard was “we’ll see what happens”. Nonetheless, everyone from Eli Home for Abused Children were incredibly grateful for his $25,000 sponsorship and hope to continue to build that relationship.

After Maloof’s speech, the presentation of the Cariño Award was presented. This award is the highest honor that Eli Home presents to an outstanding group, person, organization or company that has shown unequivocal support to their cause throughout the years. This year, we were humbled with this honor. The Hilton Anaheim team watched proudly as Lorri Galloway, Executive Director of Eli Home presented Shaun Robinson, General Manager of the hotel with a beautiful plaque and a heart warming thank you for the hotel’s support  over the last 16 years.

A delectable dinner and a auction with professional auctioneer kept everyone at the event in high spirits as music began to play and the dance floor filled up with Anaheim’s finest including Mayor Tom Tait, Council Members Gale Eastman, Kris Murray and the rest of the amazing supporters of Eli home making this one of the organizations more successful events to date!  The Anaheim Hilton family would like to once again thank Eli Home for the incredible honor and look forward to supporting the organization for many years to come!
