Eli’s Sponsors Lawson House Honors Event

Eli’s was pleased to be one of the sponsors for the Lawson House Honors Event on Thursday, November 1st, 2012.  The event was honoring a remarkable history of Board Leadership and Support.

Since 1931, Lawson House has provided safe, afforable housing for men and women.  Now the largest single-room supportive housing facility in the Midwest, it plays a key role in Chicago’s efforts to address homelessness.

But housing is only half the story.  Lawson house also provides an array of free social services, mental health and primary medical care to help residents be independent and self-sufficient.  These supportive services have been carefully added over the past 30 years through lasting partnerships with area providers.  Through their commitment, Lawson House has emerged as a national model of supportive housing.  Their success is based in part on the support and leadership of the Lawson House Board of Directors.

Peapod’s CTA & Metra Stations Virtual Grocery Store Billboards Carry Eli’s Cheesecake

Eli’s Cheesecake is proud to be part of Peapod’s new virtual grocery stores at transit stations throughout the Chicagoland area. From the Red line Sox/35th stop to suburban stops such as Grayslake, Peapod has put virtual grocery stores on billboards all over Chicago. Across the United States, Peapod is also trying these virtual grocery stores in places like Boston, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Washington, and Philadelphia. The virtual grocery store works through QR codes; the commuter uses their smartphone to download the free PeapodMobile app and then scans the QR codes of the food items they’d like to purchase.  The Chicago virtual stores feature not only Eli’s Cheesecake, but a selection of Chicago’s Best including Lou Malanati’s, Garrett’s Popcorn and Wildfire.
