We have been holding our annual fundraiser for our son’s travel baseball teams at Arlington Lanes for the past 4 years and we have never been disappointed. It is always a great time for family and friends to spend a night out while raising funds for their teams. The food, facilities, and service is fantastic. Mark and his staff have made the act of fundraising painless and easy.

We chose to hold our Candlelite Bowling fundraiser at Arlington Lanes because no one does it better. From the beginning to the end Mark and his staff are extremely helpful. They know what it takes to make your fundraiser a success! We wouldn't have our Candlelite anywhere else!

We had two fundraisers at Arlington Lanes this winter. The first was on January 25th and the second on February 7th. Mark and Dave where very helpful in every way.

The staff on those evenings were kind, courteous and super helpful. All the way down from Mark, to the set up crew, clean up crew, front desk and the bartenders. The facilities were clean, the food was delicious and I didn't have to do the dishes!!

We would definitely use Arlington Lanes again for future fundraising opportunities. We had a blast and made some significant money for both our teams, who could ask for more?

Thanks again for having the 12U and 14U Mount Prospect Mavericks.

We had our son's 1st Holy Communion Party at Arlington Lanes and we were so glad that we did! The planning was soooo easy! The staff was very accommodating and attentive, which took all the pressure off of me! The food was amazing and there was plenty of it! Everyone enjoyed the concept of being able to bowl after dinner, which made the party even more memorable! I would definitely recommend Arlington Lanes to anyone who wants to host a fun and easy event!!

The Roselle Rampage Softball Association would like to recognize Arlington Lanes for making our Candlelight Fundraiser so easy as well as a huge success. All it took were a couple of calls and the rest was done by the very helpful and eager to please staff. The food was DELICIOUS!!! From the salad to the desserts. Our Organization had a wonderful time. The bowling alley was clean, modern and roomy. We were able to sit back and really have a great time. So Thank you Arlington Lanes for helping make our fundraiser successful with offering great food, a great facility and a very friendly staff!!!!

– On Behalf of the Roselle Rampage again...Thank you Mark and staff.
