Tonight, a celebratory Eli’s Cheesecake will be served at President Obama’s Staff Inaugural Ball honoring the White House staff and presidential campaign workers. We are proud to be on display at this historical event and on the day our founder, Eli Schulman, would have celebrated his 103rd birthday. Thank you to our friends, customers, and associates for this great achievement!

Since 1991, Eli’s Cheesecake Company has partnered with the Chicago School of Agriculture Sciences (CHSAS) providing job shadowing, mentor programs and internships. We are very proud to be featured along with CHSAS in the National Honey Board’s article “Baking with Honey” http://www.bakingwithhoney.com/news/2013/01/17/sweet-like-honey-elis-cheesecake-chsas-partnership-stronger-than-ever/
Eli’s Wildflower Honey Cheesecake is made with honey harvested by CHSAS. The CHSAS students harvest, prepare and bottle their wildflower honey for this product providing Eli’s with approximately 2,000 pounds of honey annually. All proceeds from purchasing the honey and a portion of the proceeds from the Wildflower Honey Cheesecakes sales go to the CHSAS’s college scholarship fund for seniors.
