Eli’s in Chicago 2016

Thursday, July 28th, 2016 marked the first day of our 4-day celebration of National Cheesecake Cheesecake Day. Eli’s Cheesecake began it’s celebration with the annual Eli’s Mobile across from the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, and next to Seneca Park, where President Marc Schulman and wife and Eli’s publicist Maureen, accompanied by associates handed out FREE single-serve cheesecakes to the public. Individuals were able to meet and greet our mascot, Big Eli’s Slice while listening to some fun cheesecake music. Below are some photos of people who were happy to take pictures with slice.

The next stop for the Eli’s Mobile was The Chicago History Museum. Here, Eli’s Cheesecake was able to provide single-serve cheesecakes to museum associates as well as families visiting the museum and people walking and driving by. Our stop at the CHM even led a Trolly to stop by.

After Eli’s Mobile, we headed out Monroe and Michigan Ave. and began the first ever Eli’s Scavenger Hunt. We posted via social media pictures with the hashtag #ElisScavengerHunt as clues to our location, in addition to a secret word that a person was required to say, and the first person to find us would win a prize.

Although handing out the remaining cheesecake slices from Eli’s Mobile was a success, we also had 4 winners of our scavenger hunt. Here  are some photos from the remainder of the day. For us, this was an amazing opportunity. We are a company from Chicago and believe Chicagoans deserve a piece of cheesecake, especially during our celebration of National Cheesecake Day.

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.
