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.”
