Special Events


Our Development Office hosts several events throughout the year for parents, grandparents, alumni and friends.

As you might have guessed, Tampa prep events will look slightly different this year, but we are excited to make them just as special in this “new normal”! Stay tuned for more information on each of these Prep traditions. We are working hard to make sure we can all celebrate as a community in the safest way possible moving forward. Questions and ideas? Please contact the Development Office.

THIS YEAR’S EVENT WILL BE VIRTUAL. This social event for parents with students new to the school typically includes food and drinks with other parents and several key members of the School community. This is a parent-only event (no students) and is for NEW parents only. Questions about New Parent Reception? Contact the Development Office.

Alumni Events

Throughout the year
Whether you’re networking with alumni at a county courthouse coffee, gathering with friends at a happy hour in New York, or interviewing a potential job prospect for a Senior Internship, you can connect with the Terrapin alumni community through a variety of events that will engage both your mind and heart. Have an idea for (or interested in hosting) an event? Contact Maggie Morrison, Director of Donor Engagement.


On Grandparents Day, all grandparents and special friends are treated to special performances and join their grandchildren in classes to experience Tampa Prep.


Our annual Golf Outing will take place at Saddlebrook Resort. Individuals can play for $250 and foursomes are available for $1,000, which includes lunch, beer and wine, golfer swag bags, and more. Additionally, there are multiple Golf Outing sponsorship opportunities, and each level has different perks. Non-golfers can enjoy all of the amenities of the resort including the spa and pool, where we will have several games and activities for kids. For more information contact the Development Office.


2021 date TBD
Our annual Tampa Prep Gala took place at Armature Works on March 7, 2020, and raised more than $500,000. We are incredibly grateful to our sponsors, attendees and bidders! This long-standing tradition at Tampa Prep includes cocktails, dinner, music, entertainment, and performances and presentations by students and administration alike! We appreciate the community’s generosity and look forward to seeing everyone again next year! Questions about the Gala? Contact the Development Office.
