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.”

Mickey Scavenger Hunt: GRAND PRIZE WINNER!!

July 2, 2010

After 21 years, Angels Stadium of Anaheim will once again host the Major League Baseball All Star Game!

To celebrate All Star Week in Anaheim, Major League Baseball and Disney Consumer Products, populated key locations in Southern California, with thirty-six 7.5 foot, 989 pound, unique All-Star Mickey Mouse statues. The statues were placed as far North as Santa Monica, as far South Laguna Beach, and as far East as Rancho Cucamonga.

On June 11, MLB and Disney Consumer Products launched a Find Mickey Scavenger Hunt. Fans were encouraged to visit the statues and had a unique opportunity to be rewarded for it!  The first participant to tweet a link to #AllStarMickey with a photo gallery of themselves in front of all 36 statues, would win the grand prize, two tickets to the MLB All-Star Game on July 13!

Hollie Eisenman, Marketing Coordinator for Hilton Anaheim, was very excited to to take on this adventure and be the first person to find all 36 Mickey Mouse statues. She grew up watching baseball and played softball for many years. If you ask her what her favorite thing is to do in Orange County, “Go to an Angels Game,” would absolutely be her first answer.

With a dream and a mission, she started her search on Saturday, June 5th after reading the scavenger hunt announcement by the City of Anaheim. After 6 days, 22 Hours, Over 650 Miles, and 3 Tanks of Gas, Hollie Eisenman found all 36 Mickey Mouse Statues! Major League Baseball announced her the official grand prize winner via Twitter on June 25th.

You can read about all of the adventure and her story on her search for the statues on her blog:
