For the past 6 years, Eli’s has benefitted from our partnership with Ray & Erin Arceo and students from Miguel Juarez Middle School in Waukegan. In the past years, we have spruced up the Eli M. Schulman Playground and Seneca Park as part of the Chicago’s Friends of the Park Annual Earth Day Parks & Preserves Clean-up program. However, a questionable weather forecast for Saturday, May 7th resulted in the day being reorganized. This year, the students planted and cleaned our business park grounds here at Eli’s Cheesecake World. They also got the chance to decorate their own cheesecakes to bring home. It was very special to have these dedicated kids here with us on that special day.
