National Cheesecake Day celebrated with Miss Illinois and Eli’s Chicago fans

 

For National Cheesecake Day 2012, Eli’s was honored by a visit from Megan Ervin, Miss Illinois! She celebrated by putting her culinary skills to the test and decorating her own Eli’s Cheesecake with the help of Eli’s pastry chefs.

In honor of Megan’s great work and commitment to helping our community, Eli’s announced that a portion of all proceeds of all sales made on National Cheesecake Day would be donated to Children’s Miracle Network.

Eli’s was also proud to present a $1,000 donation to Children’s Miracle Network on Megan’s behalf.

Megan generously donated her time to help the Eli’s team and the Eli’s slice mascot hand out over 1,000 FREE cheesecake slices around Chicago to celebrate National Cheesecake Day. They rode around town in the Cheesecake Mobile, a 1928 Ford delivery truck modified to store a truckload of cheesecake slices!  The group stopped at important landmarks in Chicago like the  Seneca Park/Eli Schulman Playground (located across from the new Children’s Memorial Hospital), and the Prudential Building.  The Eli’s team also posted surprise stops on Twitter and Facebook so our fans could get in on the fun and enjoy a free slice of Eli’s.   

 Fans who aren’t lucky enough to live in Chicago were able to enjoy free shipping on a different delicious flavor each hour  on elicheesecake.com.

Eli’s Cheesecake Celebrates National Cheesecake Day with Miss Illinois and the Debut of the Eli’s Cheesecake Mobile

Miss Illinois, Megan Ervin, will kick off Eli’s Cheesecake’s National Cheesecake Day celebration by decorating cheesecake (wearing a hairnet and her crown) and announcing that Eli’s will donate a portion of all sales made on National Cheesecake Day, in-store and online, to The Children’s Miracle Network, the charity supported by Megan.
Eli’s will also debut the Cheesecake mobile, a black and white 1928 Ford delivery truck that’s been tricked out with enough storage space for over 1,000 slices of cheesecake.  The Eli’s Cheesecake mobile will drive around the City all day, accompanied by the Eli’s Cheesecake mascot (a giant slice) who will pass out free cheesecake slices.  Scheduled stops include the areas near the Jefferson Park CTA Station, Seneca Park/Eli Schulman Playground (located across from the new Children’s Memorial Hospital), and the Prudential Building.  Check Eli’s Twitter and Facebook sites for surprise stops.
For those who can’t join in the fun in Chicago, our online celebration is free shipping on the featured cheesecake flavor of the hour (8:00 am – 1:00 pm).
