Racing to Beat Brain Cancer

On May 18, 2019 we hosted our annual fundraiser at Arlington Race Track on the same day as the Preakness Stakes, and it was a huge success!

Thanks to our most generous supporters, The Michael Matters Foundation raised $110,000.00 for brain tumor patients and their families in need! Your support truly matters!


Saturday, May 18, 2019 1:00 - 4:30 PM Arlington International Racecourse 220 Euclid Avenue Arlington Heights, IL 60005

Ticket Price: $150

Dress Code Required: It’s part of the experience and Arlington Racetrack rules*. Please leave your jeans, shorts, t-shirts, athletic shoes at home and and think big hats, seersucker, blazers and festive wear. We can’t wait to see you on the 18th!

Your Support Matters - Cheers!

Enter Arlington Race Track using the “Clubhouse Parking Entrance” off Euclid Avenue and bring your car to the complimentary valet at the Clubhouse Entrance. (See Map in Link Below) From there, volunteers will help direct you to the Governor’s Room on the third floor.


* Unfortunately, if you aren’t dressed appropriately, the racetrack won’t let you into the event, and we’d hate for you to miss the fun! Please no jeans, shorts, gym shoes or T-shirts.
