Merry Christmas, and a Very Special Thank You

Merry Christmas, and a very special thank you to all of our customers who donated to our First Annual Warming the Hands of Homeless Drive to make it a success. We collected loads of gloves and went out this morning to distribute to the less fortunate. Our journey started in East Elmhurst where we met a few people on the street, then continued on down Queens Boulevard and into Manhattan's Bowery District, where several needy people took kindly to receiving a pair of gloves on this unusually warm Christmas Day. From there we set out back up town landing at Penn Station, where dozens of men and women thanked us for our donations to keep them warm through the winter...

Fairway here we come...

Well, we're going to be available in the freezer section of all 14 Fairways after Thanksgiving. Plain, Chocolate Chip, and Milk Chocolate in our new packaging. It's been a lot of hard work, and I promise I will keep at it, until we're available at a store near you.  My grandmother would be so happy if she was here to see her recipe for plain cheesecake evolve into 20+ flavors of cheesecake sandwiches for all to enjoy. This is my way of honoring her memory, and sharing her delicious dessert with you all. Thank you.
