As the Eli’s Cheesecake Festival has grown, our partnership with Radio Disney has allowed us to bring very exciting talent to the Festival. Radio Disney Day this year was Saturday, September 16th and our US Cellular Main Stage was packed with fans of some of the best young talent in the entertainment industry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year’s Eli’s Cheesecake Festival marked Greg Raposo’s third visit to Eli’s Cheesecake World. He visited first as part of the Radio Disney Jingle Jam Tour when Eli’s hosted the Ultimate Meet & Greet with Greg, Jesse McCartney and Stevie Brock. Then Greg returned as a solo performer for the 2004 Eli’s Cheesecake Festival. This year Greg came with his band “Raposo”.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eli’s Cheesecake and Wright College are major sponsors of the Happiness Club, a group of forty children and young adults who use music and dance as a way to reach their peers with a positive message through the power of
music.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Eli’s Cheesecake was a supporter of Radio Disney from its first day on the air in Chicago. We appreciate the support support of now Regional Manager, Karyn Esken, newly appointed Station Manager, Dave Pawelek, and our
host for the day, Patti Kan, the Cosmic DJ.
