FVV Fest 2022: Bet On Yourself Bowling,
FVV Experience & FVV Summer Camp
In partnership with NBA all-star, world champion and Rockford native Fred VanVleet and the VanVleet Family Foundation, Plus Seven Company helped bring VanVleet's signature events back home this summer through the production of the Fred VanVleet (FVV) Fest 2022. An all-ages three-part event series, the FVV Fest 2022 featured Bet On Yourself Bowling, the FVV Experience & the FVV Summer Camp.
As the FVV Fest 2022 opening night Thursday, June 23, Bet On Yourself Bowling brought the community together for cosmic bowling, a silent auction, prizes, music and fun for a good cause. On night two, Friday, June 24, VanVleet’s high school alma mater served as the backdrop for the FVV Experience, a rec night built for the community that included a variety of court activations and games, giveaways, shooting contests, and all things FVV.
The FVV Summer Camp was held at Auburn High School on Saturday-Sunday, June 25-26, and served as the FVV Fest 2022 finale. Camp kids received a t-shirt, lunch, and training from VanVleet and his expert staff.
