LEBANON, Tenn. – The Cumberland University baseball team will host its annual Kickoff Dinner and Auction at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, February 13 in the Benton Jennings Center on the CU. The evening will include a silent and live auction of baseball memorabilia as well as other donated items, with all proceeds benefitting the CU baseball program.
Cumberland will honor long-time “super fan” Louie Payton during the event. Payton was a regular at sporting events and really all over the CU campus for more than 30 years before his passing earlier this month. Some of Payton’s favorite foods will be served as well as his all-time favorite for dessert, chocolate pie.
Cost of the event is $25 per person. For more information or questions please contact head coach Woody Hunt at 615-547-1366 or email [email protected].
