Eli’s Cheesecake Brings Dessert as the Chicago St. Patrick’s Day Parade Committee Selects it 2008 Parade Queen

One of our richest traditions at Eli’s is our annual participation in the St. Patrick’s Day Queens Contest. It dates back to my dad, Eli Schulman, hosted plumbing industry leaders Ed Brabec and Dan Lydon, as they planned the Annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade for the City. It continues today with my wife and Eli’s Director of Public Relations, Maureen Schulman, serving as one of the judges for
the Queen’s Contest.









Bob Ryan, emcee of the Queen’s Contest thanks Eli’s for providing cheesecakes for the guests at the Contest.







The tradition of Eli’s Cheesecake bringing dessert to the Queen’s Contest dates back over 20 years ago. It was Eli’s dear associate and friend, Rita Tierney, who suggested Eli’s create a green Irish Mint Cheesecake for the event. Today joined by Eli’s Bailey Cheesecake and Eli’s Original, the tradition
happily continues.









Bob Ryan and Eli’s Maureen Schulman celebrate another successful year for the Queen’s Contest. Maureen has been a judge for the Queen’s Contest most of the years that we have provided dessert. It is the role of the distinguished judges to interview the over 100 applicants each year to pick a Queen that demonstrates “the qualities of grace, sincerity, beauty, sense of humor, poise, personality and wit” that makes this good will ambassador for the Parade so important.
