Eli’s Cheesecake Supports the Chicago Help Initiative and its Wednesday Dinner Program–February 20, 2013

When Chicago Realtor Jacqueline Hayes came up with the idea in 2001 to create a not for profit organization to provide meals and social services for the homeless and the underprivileged on Chicago’s near north side, Eli’s the Place for Steak was the first restaurant to volunteer to provide dinner for the 130 guests that are served each week. That organization has now evolved into the Chicago Help Initiative (CHI) which provides the Wednesday Dinner and an expanding number of other services.

Eli’s the Place for Steak then provided Dinner each year until the restaurant closed for the construction of the new Lurie Children’s Hospital. Now the culinary staff and associates of Eli’s Cheesecake continue that tradition. On February 20th, 2013, Chef Antonio, Elsa, Felicia, Lucy, Maria, Mary, Jenny, Marc, Sharon,  and Tristen joined the staff of the Greater North Michigan Avenue Association to provide dinner.

Eli’s Team Ready to serve Wednesday Night Dinner at the Chicago Help Initiative.
Eli’s Chef Antonio prepared a great menu of carved roast beef, rustic yukon gold potatoes, candied carrots, rolls and Eli’s Cheesecake Brownie.
Eli’s Marc Schulman, Bob Dion of Davis Harrison Dion and John Chikow of the Greater North Michigan Avenue Association congratulate CHI Founder and President Jacqueline Hayes on her commitment to those in need in Chicago.
Eli’s is proud to have been CHI’s first provider of Wednesday Dinner in 2001 and an Annual Supporter since.

Spotlight on Eli’s Fan: Laura Linger

Valentine’s Day brings back special memories for almost everyone, including Eli’s Fan Laura Linger. On her Valentine’s Day blog post, Linger wrote about the night her husband hid his fraternity’s lavalier (his fraternity letters, in silver, descending down as a pendant) in an Eli’s Chocolate Chip Cheesecake. A lavalier is given as a sign of commitment and affection from a member of a fraternity to his girlfriend. What a romantic and delicious surprise! To read Laura’s Valentine’s Day blog post, or other posts from her blog, A Touch of Tuesday Weld, check out!
