It was a pleasure for all of us at Eli’s Cheesecake to be part of Mayor Richard M. Daley’s wager with San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed over the Western Conference Finals for the National Hockey League. Eli’s was proud to be part of that prior round victory over the Vancouver Canucks and Eli’s look forward to delivering Eli’s Cheescake as a “conciliation prize” to the Mayor of Vancouver and soon the Mayor of San Jose. We look forward to the Blackhawks bringing the Stanley Cup back to Chicago!

The wager was held in the Mayor’s Conference Room which was filled with a great display of Chicago specialty foods and flowers.

Eli’s Marc Schulman supports the Mayor’s Wager with a commitment to send 500 slices of Eli’s Cheesecake to San Jose in the unlikely event that the Blackhawks win. Far more probable is that Eli’s will send 4 cakes to Mayor Reed–”why should he be deprived of great cheesecake from Chicago.”

Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is a huge supporter of Chicago Food Companies. The Blackhawk’s road to the Stanley Cup is a great way to highlight the uniqueness and quality of Chicago Food Companies.
