Fox Bowl Open Tournament  Fox Bowl V.I.P. Invitational

We had a nice crowd for the Fox Bowl Open Tournament and the Fox Bowl V.I.P. Invitational!  (The Open tournament is for all our league bowlers, the V.I.P. Invitational is for our league bowlers who bowled 700 series or higher and games of 275 or higher) A nice way to wrap up the past bowling season and usher in the Summer Leagues. High scores continued from the league season into the Open and V.I.P.  tournament. This Years Tournament Champion in Steve "Wojbeast" Wojdyla. A truly deserved winner. This guy puts the work in on the lanes with practice, and his lessons. And he stays on top of his bowling equipment, keeping it in tip top shape through the Fox Bowl Pro Shop. 

Both Tournaments are bowled simultaneously, using the same 4 games. Not all bowlers qualify for the V.I.P. Invitational.

Young Hearts For Life

Please join us Saturday March 18th and help raise money for this great cause. This one is close to home. Dale Nickos is the founder of this event and is one of our Fox Bowl family. Take a look here




The last few weekends have been PACKED here at Fox Bowl. The schedule , the questionable weather, and it's just that time of year to bowl. But one of the greatest reasons we have been so busy is our fundraisers. By partnering with local Baseball, Softball, Soccer, Special needs, Scouts and neighborhood groups and churches, over $100000 have been raised for the various groups. From the well seasoned Fundraiser hosts to the novices. Fox Bowl works hand in hand to ensure your group gets what it needs to be successful.  And trust us, you and your guests will have a Ball!




 


Aidan's Army for Pediatric Brain Cancer.

The fundraiser was a success! Thank you to all who participated!



Look what our Employee/Elmhurst Team Captain Marissa Soverino did!!

Disabled Veterans Fund Raiser

Sunday, Oct 16th at 12 Noon the sound of crashing pins and cheering bowlers followed a rousing rendition of the National Anthem performed by the singing sensation group Musicality. And the 1st Annual Friends of Fisher House Charity Benefit was off to a great start.

A total of 26 teams and many individuals competed to support our disabled veterans and their families through the efforts of Fisher House located in Maywood, IL near Hines Veterans Hospital. Our most notable attendees were the veterans themselves, centered right in the middle of the action on lanes 13 thru 16. Despite their disabilities or handicaps these brave veterans were able to bowl with the use of special bowling equipment designed by IKAN BOWLING.

Other notable attendees included: Dan Pasqua, Chicago White Sox; Tracy Wilson, Jr., Tennessee Titans; Diandra Asbaty, Bill Spigner, Mike Nape, Gregg Zicha, and Brian Hirsch representing bowlings finest competitors and instructors; "The Don of Sports" Don Figarelli, host of Addison's Sport Center TV program; Musicality, from America's Got Talent who performed our National Anthem; staff from US99 Country Music; and the 4 collegiate bowling teams from Robert Morris College

The Robert Morris teams dominated the competition with the Men's Varsity squad ultimately winning the championship. The RM teams generously donated their prizes to the amateur teams that followed them in the standings. The prizes included Storm/RotoGrip bowling balls, travel bags, and Bowlifi sport jerseys.

Thank you to our many Corporate Sponsors and a special thanks to our ladies in the Arrowhead Bowling League. The ladies generously sponsored 3 youth teams in the event ($375) through their own personal contributions, in memory of our recently lost friend, Carol Kahlfeldt.

See you next year at the 2nd Annual Friends of Fisher House Charity Event!

What an exciting week in Indianapolis for the Youth Junior Gold Championships.  Mabel Cummins, who bowls

at Fox Bowl and works with Gregg, earned the prestigious honor of being crowned the CHAMPION!  Mabel and

Gregg had a great game plan for the brutal sport patterns  from shot 1 of the tournament until the final shot.  She bowled well above her years

She set a record with the highest average for the U15 division at 195!  She also earned a spot on JUNIOR TEAM USA developmental squad.
