We were very happy to be asked by Enjoy Jim Bracey of the Salvation Army if we could help make some of the first meals of the Hurricane evacuees to Chicago more pleasant. With so many thing donated, high on the list of requests was a meal highlighting local favorites. Enjoy Bracey came over to Eli’s Cheesecake World to pick up Eli’s for dessert to follow Vienna Hot Dogs and Lou Malanti’s Pizza. We look forward to donating more dessert as the number of evacuees to Chicago grows.
This coming weekend is the 9th Annual Eli’s Cheesecake Festival. From our first Festival, the Greater Chicago Food Depository has been a beneficiary of the Festival. We collect non-perishable foods in return for which we give slices of Eli’s Cheesecake as a thank you and also support the donation of cash to the Food Depository and its relief efforts by giving whole Eli’s Cheesecakes to the supporters. We look forward to an outstanding weekend of music, cheesecake, entertainment and fun as we support Hurricane Relief and also the New Horizons Center fo the Developmentally Disabled
