“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 gift certificates to local restaurants and attractions. All trees will be available for pickup starting December 4, 2015.
