The late "Big Lou" Payton
Cumberland University's annual "Dine With the Dawgs" dinner and auction will be held 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13 in the Benton Jennings Indoor Center.
The evening will include a silent and live auction of baseball memorabilia as well as other donated items, with all proceeds going to the CU baseball program.
Cumberland will honor the late “super fan” Louie Payton during the event. Some of Payton’s favorite foods, including meatloaf as well as his all-time favorite dessert, chocolate pie, will be on the menu.
In addition a drawing for a big screen TV and dinner for two to Outback Steakhouse is planned.
Cost of the event is $25 per person. Proceeds will benefit the Cumberland baseball program. To reserve tickets, contact coach Woody Hunt at 615-547-1366 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
