PHOENIX, Aug. 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Farmers Insurance℠ will host the Kick-Off Classic at Phoenix's Sandra Day O'Connor High School (SDOC) on Friday, August 21, with a $15,000 donation to mark the beginning of the school's football season.

"I'm always looking for ways to help my community, and I understood that the SDOC football team were in dire need of new uniforms and equipment," said Bob Ratkovich, a District Manager for Farmers Insurance.
