While singer and songwriter Larry Long is in La Crosse to receive Viterbo’s Pope John XXIII Award for Distinguished Service, he figured he might as well put in an appearance to do good work benefiting one of many causes he has supported.

When Long was contacted by his friend Tom Thibodeau, a volunteer from Place of Grace, he agreed to perform a benefit concert at the Viterbo San Damiano Chapel with the proceeds to go the La Crosse-based Catholic Worker House.

Price of admission for the Monday, April 2, 7 p.m. concert will be a free-will offering.

Place of Grace, located at 919 Hood, was started several years ago by a group of individuals who wanted to provide hospitality, companionship and meals in a home-like environment. While many in need benefit from what Place of Grace offers, anyone is welcome to stop by to visit or share a meal.
Larry Long will be joined on stage by Minneapolis guitarist George Parrish and local musicians Earl Madary and Larry Dalton.

"This is typical of Larry," said Thibodeau. "He will be at Viterbo to receive an award. Yet he turns this honor into an opportunity to raise awareness and money for Place of Grace. His music and commitment to advocacy are both gifts."

Long has been to La Crosse on several occasions to perform concerts at Viterbo and to work with students in the graduate program.
