2019 Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl

After spending five years on the Tuesday evening before Christmas and being aired on ESPN, the
2019 Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl will kick off in the Florida sunshine on Saturday afternoon, December 21 at 3:30 p.m. ET at FAU Stadium and will broadcast nationally on ABC as well as on ESPN Radio and locally on ESPN 106.3 FM. The bowl game has conference tie-ins with teams from Conference USA, the American Athletic Conference and the Mid-American Athletic Conference.

As one of 41 postseason college bowl games in the country and one of 15 owned and operated by ESPN Events (a division of ESPN) the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl is the only one hosted in Palm Beach County. As a celebrated annual holiday tradition in Boca Raton and Palm Beach County that lives up to its other name, ‘Boca’s Biggest Annual Outdoor Party’, the event features all the pomp and circumstance of traditional bowl events. It is a high-energy, entertaining experience for both college football fans and non-fans alike and allows the national spotlight to shine on Boca Raton and Palm Beach County. Bowl week activities will begin on Tuesday, December 17 with the arrival of the participating teams; days, times and sites for the team welcome parties, beach parties, luncheon, pep rallies and other bowl week activities will be released at a later date.

Held during Boca Chamber Festival Days, the open-to-the-public live final round takes the stage on Thursday, August 1 at 6 p.m., when the public-chosen eight finalists perform a “song of their choice” for a panel of judges and live audience at Boca Raton Innovation Campus. Attending friends, family and fans will have the chance to vote for their favorite contestant and a combination of those audience votes and judges selections will determine the top three. The three will then perform the National Anthem to determine the 2019 National Anthem winner.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Spirit of Giving’s Back to School Bash. Built Ford Tough Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl Idol presented by Marshall Grant, PLLC is part of Boca Chamber Festival Days – a series of fun-filled events held at different locations during the month of August – and is facilitated by the Boca Chamber.

Held in countdown to the Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl, this annual pride-rallying fundraising event offers up a casual, laid back networking evening. Guests are encouraged to come out wearing their alma mater or favorite college team’s colors and jerseys to mix-and-mingle with fellow college football fans and community partners.

As one of the lead-in events for the sixth annual Cheribundi Boca Raton Bowl, the chefs enjoy a friendly competition of their own “takes on tailgate classics” ranging from sides and entrees to beverages and desserts. Guests get to cast their own votes for the “People’s Choice” award.
