The Outback Bowl features teams from the Big Ten Conference and Southeastern Conference and is played on Jan 2nd in Tampa’s Raymond James Stadium. The Outback Bowl Charitable Initiative provides funding to dozens of deserving Tampa Bay organizations that are meeting the needs of the community. The bowl boasts the longest college football tradition in the Tampa Bay area and will celebrate its 36th game in 2022. The Outback Bowl is proud to support education, the Tampa Bay economy, and local charities each year.
Support for The Farragut Fund is more important this year than ever before. Admiral Farragut Academy provides a transformational educational experience for every student because of our community’s incredible dedication to intellectual growth and generosity of spirit. Together, we can provide the resources the school needs to be flexible in meeting needs as they arise and ensure that all students have meaningful opportunities to grow and succeed in whatever paths they choose. The fund supports technology, faculty professional development, students’ health and well-being, student financial assistance, and facility upgrades. Together, we are Farragut!
