Eli’s Kicks off Summer with Two Chicago Celebrations

This past Friday, Eli’s was honored to be served at two different celebrations in Chicago. One was an event for the Gene Siskel Film Center honoring actor, director and producer Mark Ruffalo. Ruffalo was the recipient of the Siskel Center’s Renaissance Award for his achievements in the film industry. The event was hosted at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago Hotel and Eli’s was happy to give the attendees our new Salted Caramel Pretzel Bars as dessert. Eli’s Cheesecake was also served at the Above the Rails Gala, the opening party for The 606. The 606 is a new trail in Chicago’s Logan Square neighborhood that has been in development for the past decade.  The party was held the night before the public opening of the trail and brought together Chicago community leaders to celebrate the innovative new trail. Eli’s was thrilled to be served at both festivities and we look forward to all the rest of our summer events.

Eli’s gave out our new Salted Caramel Pretzel bars alongside another Chicago legend, Fannie May Candies.

Eli’s Proud to Participate in A Taste That Matters

Yesterday, Eli’s attended the 4th Annual A Taste That Matters, a culinary event benefitting the Northern Illinois Food Depository. The Northern Illinois Food Depository works to provide nutritious meals to people in need in Boone, DuPage, DeKalb, Grundy, Kane, Kankakee, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, Ogle, Stephenson, Will and Winnebago counties.  The event, presented by Jewel-Osco, is the organizations largest fundraiser with more than 600 guests in attendance. Guests enjoyed a variety of food provided by the local businesses and an expansive silent auction.  Eli’s provided an array of desserts including our Cherry, Apple, and Dulce de Leche Mini Pies and other bite sized treats including our 7 Layer Bar, Salted Caramel Bar, Pecan Bar and Brownies. We also served tiny slices of our Original Plain cheesecake with two different topping options – a Bittersweet Chocolate Ganache and our Housemade Strawberry Coulis. Eli’s was thrilled to be a part of such a fun event. If you would like to learn more about the organization, please click here.
