The Rockford Area Convention & Visitors Bureau is excited to announce its first joint event with Toronto Raptors rookie and Rockford native Fred VanVleet in hosting the FVV All-Star Party on Feb. 19 at the District Bar & Grill in downtown Rockford.
The event is a fundraising party to help bring additional sports tournaments and events to the Rockford region. Proceeds will go to the RACVB Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on enhancing the community through projects like Forest City Beautiful, and Rockford 5-0 Youth Basketball. The RACVB aims to help VanVleet establish a new basketball camp and tournament at the UW Health Sports Factory this summer.
The FVV All-Star Party includes musical performances sponsored by Urban Equity Properties from local musicians Ashleye Armelin and RAJU. In addition, there will be a silent auction, buffet dinner and the NBA All-Star game will be on throughout the night for fans to enjoy.
