On Saturday, Nov. 21st, Eli’s Cheesecake Company hosted  and participated in two major events: the annual Thanksgiving Dock Sale at the bakery cafe and the 24th annual BMO Harris Bank Magnificent Mile Lights Festival.

As the holiday season kicks in, Eli’s Cheesecake will continue to provide great deals for customers and participate in holiday fun, like the Lights Festival. The annual Thanksgiving Dock Sale began from 9am-1pm and customers were able to save up to 40% off, which is the biggest sale of the year.

Eli’s Cheesecake’s tent at The Magnificent Mile Lights Festival Lane was open from 11am-4pm and while temperatures were low, and the snow was coming down full force, there were lines of people eager to decorate a free slice of plain cheesecake. It has become tradition that the students from the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences  help in the cheesecake decorating process. The CHSAS students were in the holiday spirit and sang some cheesecake holiday tunes, making the guest’s experience memorable. Individuals also had the opportunity to receive a free cheesecake slice or whole cheesecake if they donated to the Greater Chicago Food Depository who also shared the tent with Eli’s Cheesecake.
