In celebration of Mickey Mouse’s 76th birthday, Eli’s Cheesecake created a
300 lb. birthday cheesecake that was enjoyed by over 2,500 kids and their
parents at Chicago’s Children’s Memorial Hospital. Our thanks to Eli’s Chef
Martha for creating this great treat.
Mickey Mouse was in town to lead the lighting of Michigan Avenue as part of
the 13th Annual Magnificent Mile Lights Festival. This was the second year in a
row that Eli’s and Mickey Mouse have teamed up to bring some Eli’s and and
Disney Magic to the very special people at Children’s Memorial. We know that
some people can’t make it down to Michigan Avenue for the procession so it is
great to have Mickey come to them.
To enhance the party, Grape Jam, Francis W. Parker High School’s advanced
chorale ensemble, sang “Happy Birthday” and “When you Wish Upon a star.”
Our thanks to the team at Eli’s who created and served the cake and to the
dedicated staff at Children’s.
