San Diego CA— This holiday season, USO San Diego encourages all San Diegans to stand together and support the sacrifice of our military service members and their families. For the second year, USO San Diego is the honored beneficiary of holiday events sponsored by the Hilton San Diego Bayfront.
The season kicks off on Wednesday, November 21, 2018, as the Hilton San Diego Bayfront will commence its third annual Holiday by the Bay with a newly reimagined waterfront holiday adventure park located 1 Park Blvd, San Diego, CA 92101. The all-new Holiday by the Bay will transform Bayfront Park into the ultimate holiday destination and ice adventure park featuring San Diego’s only two-story, 100-foot ice tubing slide, iceberg bumper cars, nightly snow flurries, an hourly interactive light show featuring a 30-foot tall Christmas tree, festive fare, craft holiday cocktails, cozy fire-side lounges, gingerbread decorating, stocking trimming, and much more.
The holiday adventure park will be open on select nights from November 21, 2018 – January 5, 2019. The festive program benefitting USO San Diego was developed by Executive Producers of The Queen Mary’s “Chill” and “Dark Harbor,” a Los Angeles-based EPIC Entertainment Group.
“USO San Diego is truly honored to be the beneficiary of Hilton San Diego Bayfront’s kindness and generosity,” said Lorin Stewart, CEO of USO San Diego. “Since 1941 the USO has stood by our troops through every step of their service, from deployment to rehabilitation and reintegration. Our organization heavily relies on donations and is especially in need of toy donations during the holiday season. It’s important to note that USO San Diego receives no federal or state funding and relies heavily on the generosity of the community to assist us in making a difference in the lives of military personnel and their families.”
From November 21, 2018 to December 18, 2018, USO San Diego also invites members of the community to drop off monetary donations and gifts for children up to 18 years of age for USO San Diego at Geppetto’s Toys, Jersey Mikes, Hilton San Diego Bayfront, and the Giving Tree at Headquarters at Seaport Village. Gifts will benefit more than 1,000 active-duty military families served through USO San Diego.
