Last week we honored our good friend,  Merri Dee, at the Metropolitan Club in the Willis Tower to celebrate her 50 years in broadcasting! Hundreds of friends and fans were on hand to celebrate the life and career of this Chicago legend. The event, to benefit the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, also featured an extra large Eli’s Cheesecake topped with chocolate-covered strawberries. Merri has been a friend of Eli’s for many years and we love her positive attitude, especially her most famous saying, made up of ten little two-letter words: “If it is to be, it is up to me!”

Here’s to many more years, Merri!
