Cumberland University Postpones Phoenix Ball

Cumberland University will postpone its annual Phoenix Ball to Saturday, August 1, 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event was originally scheduled for Saturday, June 6. 

The 37th annual fundraising event, chaired by Ray and Stephanie Hubner, is themed “Draped in Decadence and Masked in Mystery” and will be held on the Cumberland campus. The ball is the university’s largest fundraising event that helps provide scholarships to students. 

Cumberland is closely monitoring the situation and following government orders as well as recommendations from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. 

The Phoenix Ball Patrons’ Party, scheduled for Saturday, July 11, will remain on that date. The Patrons’ Party will be hosted at the home of Lynotte and Denise Moore.
