roeser's bakeryRoeser's Bakery, 3216 W. North Ave., is celebrating its 100th anniversary this fall, and as is often the custom with business anniversaries, its customers are the ones getting presents.

Starting today and running through Dec. 9, Roeser's is "100 Days of 100 Cents" special. The special $1 deals will include donuts, cupcakes, cookies, ice cream and more. According to the September specials calendar posted on Facebook, today through Sunday you can get a red velvet cupcake for $1, limit two per customer. Next week the special will be maple bacon long johns, followed by assorted "cake bites" Sept. 13-17. Call the bakery at 773-489-6900 or visit Facebook for news of future specials.

Roeser's is also giving back to the neighborhood in less fattening ways. From Sept. 1 until Dec. 22, 5 percent of the proceeds from sales of certain goods will be donated to five Humboldt Park schools: Lowell Elementary, Richard Yates Elementary, Humboldt Park Christian Academy, Stowe Elementary and Maternity BVM Schools. Each month from September through December, the school with the most sales will also receive a $500 bonus from the bakery.
