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!


Hilton Anaheim in USA Today

March 13, 2009

new-image2

The Hilton Anaheim appears in USA Today in an article by Roger Yu about how hotels are working to pare down costs without reducing quality or guest satisfaction. Carlos Acosta, our F&B Director, is a firm believer that a little creativity can go a long way when it comes to providing a great experience for our guests!

For example, rather than close down our buffet on days when traffic is slower, we offer a “Personal Buffet” menu, which lets you order pretty much anything that would’ve been on the regular buffet, but the chefs prepare it for you in the kitchen. We’ve also introduced a Comfort Food room service menu with reasonably priced menu items that will make you feel right at home.
