Ghosts and Goblets event to raise money for Pope scholarship

Staff Reports • Oct 4, 2017 at 9:41 PM

The spirits will materialize for the Ghosts and Goblets fundraiser Oct. 27 from 7-10 p.m. in Cumberland University’s Baird Chapel. 

Ghosts and Goblets was formed in 2015 as a way to memorialize longtime Cumberland history professor Monty Pope. Money raised from the event will go toward the Monty and Pace Pope Scholarship for history and international students at Cumberland. Pace Pope and her family, John, Traci, Spencer, Kristi and Monty’s sister, Brenda, along with Cumberland alumni and friends put on the event every other year. 

Natalie Inman and Rick Bell, Cumberland history professors, will lead the campus ghost tours, which will include several surprises. Monty Pope started the popular campus ghost tour for students many years ago. The event will also include a heavy hors d’oeuvres and dessert buffet, along with alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The attire is “fun, fall casual.”

The public is invited to Ghosts and Goblets, and can purchase tickets, which are $60 for general admission, $100 for couples and $35 for Cumberland University alumni, by calling Nova Lawrence at 615-547-1269 or Pace Pope at 615-547-1206.
