Eli’s Poud to Support Sharing It Day 2007 at the Merchandise Mart and the Greater Chicago Food Depository

The Merchandise Mart in Chicago is the nation’s largest commercial building with over 4 million square foot of space and over 3.5 million visitors annually to its showrooms, offices and retail space. It is our pleasure to support the Merchandise Mart in “Sharing It Day” when it tenants and friends give food to support the mission of the Greater Chicago Food Depository.

Merchandise Mart Properties President, Chris Kennedy, and Eli’s Marc Schulman celebrate the success of Sharing It Day with the famed Radio City Rockettes in town for a series of performances at the Rosemont Theatre.

Eli’s Brian Craven and Marc Schulman get ready to give out Eli’s Cheesecake Slices to all food donors to the Sharing It Food Drive. Eli’s teamed up with Potbellys, which gave out certificates for free sandwiches, to insure that all donors were well thanked for their support.

Eli’s also brought “Sharing It” to the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival on Saturday with its tent at Lights Festival Lane. Enough donations were received to give the needy over 10,000 meals this holiday season.

Congratulations Chris Kennedy & The Merchandise Mart on the success of Artopolis 2007

This evening marked the successful closing of the first Artropolis–Chicago’s celebration of Art, Antiques & Culture. For four days, tens of thousands of Chicagoans and visitors enjoyed the best of art & entertainment in five major events at The Merchanside Mart.

One year ago, Chris Kennedy made the bold and very quick decision to save Art Chicago when the sponsor could not successfully open the doors. In a matter of a day, Chris moved Art Chicago to The Merchandise Mart and saved the event. In this past year, Chris and his dedicated team at The Merchandise Mart developed a weekend of art unlike anything ever done in Chicago before. Congratulations Chris!

The dates for Art Chicago and Artropolis are already set for May 2-5, 2008 at The Merchandise Mart. Don’t miss it!
