Our Mission

The Cumberland Corner provides once in a lifetime VIP event experiences to those served by a wide variety of community groups and non-profit organizations within Cumberland County.

About the Program

The Cumberland Corner is a special place where live, once in a lifetime VIP events are experienced by those in need.   Established in 2013, the Cumberland Corner is a wholly unique donation program within the sports and entertainment industry. 

Generously supported by the Libra Foundation, the Cumberland Corner is a luxury suite area providing the very best premium seating, VIP amenities and accommodations to the clients and members of local non-profits and charitable organizations.  For each and every event held at the Cross Insurance Arena, the Cumberland Corner Suite is donated to community groups providing members with a private luxury suite and 12 tickets to the show, including complimentary food and beverage – absolutely free of charge.  

Since opening the suite doors, the Cumberland Corner has hosted over 1,700 disadvantaged children, teens and adults through a wide variety of fun and exciting events held at the Cross Insurance Arena.

Use of the Cumberland Corner is always open to new applicants!  Organizations and community groups of all sizes and services provided are welcomed and encouraged to submit an application to experience an upcoming show here in the Cumberland Corner.  Simply fill out the short form below and your application will be received immediately by the program administrator.  You will be notified right away on the status of your submission.  We look forward to seeing you at the show!
