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.

Thanksgiving Comes Early for a Motel Family and 160 Anaheim Boys and Girls Clubs Members Thanks to The Hilton Anaheim and Global Week of Service

November 15, 2012

The Hilton Anaheim team pulled out all the stops to celebrate the Global Week of Service this year. Wearing their Blue Energy gear, the team set out to show their local Boys & Girls Club that Hilton Anaheim cares deeply about its community and is committed to helping build the future of their city’s youth. Hilton Anaheim not only brought a dozen unopened games for kids ages 5-18 to enjoy when they’re at the Club, they also cooked dinner for over 160 club members and presented one very deserving family from the club with a very special gift. The Gomez family (Martin, Susana, Maria, Carlos Angel, Anthony and one on the way) has been living at a nearby motel due to financial hardship for the past 11 years.  On November 22nd, they will be treated to first class service when they check-into the hotel to relax and experience an exquisite Thanksgiving feast cooked by executive chef, Chef Kyung Carroll.

 

“We selected Boys & Girls Clubs of Anaheim because we believe in the Clubs’ mission to inspire and enable young people like those here today to realize their full potential,  despite the challenges they face,” said Shaun Robinson, general manager of Hilton Anaheim.  “Though times have been tough for the Gomez family, they have played an important part in helping the Clubs accomplish their mission.  We are delighted to honor them.”
