About Our Auction
The Eli Home for Abused Children and the Hilton Anaheim, are partnering to host the “5th Annual Christmas Tree Lane.” Local organizations and businesses have sponsored decorated Christmas trees for auction. Guests and the public can stroll through the newly renovated Hilton Anaheim lobby among beautifully adorned Christmas trees and enjoy the creative design and uniqueness of each tree. All trees are available for purchase through online auction and through bids placed at the hotel computer kiosk. The Christmas trees come complete with decorations, lights, skirt, some with gifts attached, and will be available for pickup or delivered the first weekend in December.
Bidding begins on Thursday, November 12th at 8:00am and ends at 8:30pm on December 5th, at the annual Eli Home Black and White Christmas Ball. All proceeds go to benefit abused and neglected children.
About The Eli Home, Inc.
“Eli”, simply translated, is the Aramaic word for God, so Eli Home is God’s Home. It comes from the bible verse Matthew 27:46, when Jesus cries out on the cross, “Eli, Eli, why hast thou forsaken me?” We feel it is the cry of many children who suffer abuse.
The Eli Home started in 1983 as a home Bible study group in Mike and Lorri Galloway's living room. This was the beginning of a passion that would drive a lifetime. Soon family, friends and volunteer professionals shared the dream and the first shelter for abused children and their mothers opened 18 months later.
Today the Eli Home is a multi-faceted faith based organization with shelter facilities, a 13,000 square foot general store social enterprise, a place-based initiative called ESCRI, corporate offices, professional counseling and therapy staff, organizational staff, dedicated volunteers, board members and a history of awards and accolades that include citations from U.S. Presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton.
To welcome, shelter, comfort, heal, encourage and strengthen victims of child abuse and family violence, and prepare them to reenter the community to lead stable, non-violent lives, free from fear and intimidation – To Break the Cycle of Child Abuse.
