Eli’s Annual Holiday Dinner at the Sunshine Activity Center

Thank you to the Eli’s Team for making the Annual Holiday Dinner that Eli’s hosts for the Sunshine Activity Center such a great success. We have a long and very special partnership with the Sunshine Center and this was the best Holiday Event ever—in attendance and enthusiasm. Truly Priceless. Every member of the Center received a personal gift from Santa and an Eli’s Apple Cobbler to take home. Thank you to Diana, our Event Chair and to the Eli’s Team that made the evening so special. We had 100% participation from the Café Team and Customer Service, including all our Interns. Participating from Eli’s was Kathy and Jeff, her husband (who secured Santa), Antonio, Diana, Juana, Angelica, Joselyn, Elizabeth, Rose, Veronica, Lindsey, Katelyn, Tom, Tommy, Donna, Mary, Maria, Elsa, Juanita, Mike, Ivan and Margaret.

Eli’s Cheesecake Hosts its 2nd Annual Holiday Dinner for the Sunshine Activity Center

Eli's Team at Sunshine Center

At Eli’s, we are very proud of our partnership with the Sunshine Activity Center. The Sunshine Activity Center is an adult social service organization, that provides evening activities and dinner for a group of very special people on Chicago’s northwest side.

For the second year, associates at Eli’s spent an evening at the Center serving a delicious Turkey Dinner, Eli’s Cheesecake made with Oreos  and  Hot Chocolate with marshmallows. Following dinner, Eli’s Becky Smith called some very fun games of “Eli’s Cheesecake Bingo”…names on the card included “Whoopie Pie,” “Smoosh” and many other Eli’s Exclusives.

After Bingo, the guests serenaded  us! And then everyone went home with an Eli’s Cheesecake for their family.

Eli’s Cheesecake Brings Holiday Dinner to the Sunshine Activity Center

Eli’s Cheesecake Brings Holiday Dinner to our Friends at the Sunshine Activity Center

The bad weather in mid-December delayed the holiday party for the guests at the Sunshine Activity Center, our neighbor on Montrose.

Last night, on Wedneday, January 7th, Eli’s Chefs Fidel and Antonio were joined by a group of Eli’s Volunteers, who brought great food, hospitality and Eli’s Bingo to this outstanding group of adults. Hearing “Whoopie Pie” called by Becky is truly a hoot!

Thank you to Jolene, Jennie, Lisa, Kathy, Lucy and Becky and Chefs Antonio and Fidel for being such great hosts.

Sunshine Activity Center–an important part of our Community and a recipient of cheesecake donated by Eli’s Margaret Conway

The area around Eli’s Cheesecake & Wright College has a long history of social service. This tradition continues with outstanding organizations like the Sunshine Activity Center, which provides a number of activities for adults with developmental disabilities. The Sunshine Center is several blocks east of Eli’s on Montrose and is just across the street from the Smyser School.

It was my honor to accompany my associate, Margaret Conway, to deliver Eli’s Cheesecake to the Center to be the featured dessert at the Center Holiday Party.
