Pitcher Clayton Richard, Organist Ken Double, at Long Center
Clayton, the Cubs, and Ken â€“ a Fundraiser
Creating a unique mix of sports and music, with a specific goal to help young people and a piece of Lafayetteâ€™s musical heritage, the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lafayette along with the Long Center Theatre Organ Society present Clayton, the Cubs and Ken, an evening of Cubsâ€™ celebration, music on the Mighty Wurlitzer, and great fun at the Long Center for the Performing Arts.
Clayton Richard personifies the phrase â€œLocal boy makes good,â€ as the McCutcheon High School graduate went on to star in football and baseball at the University of Michigan, and then to Major League Baseball.Â His successful recovery from surgery provided a chance to join the Chicago Cubs, and Clayton became a part of the most remarkable story in the 2015 season.Â He will recount some of those heady days with the Cubs in his appearance at Long Center.
Sportscaster/entertainer/organist Ken Double has called Lafayette and Long Center his â€œmusical homeâ€ since his 1982 debut on the Long Center Mighty Wurlitzer organ.
The former TV 18 and Purdue basketball announcer will demonstrate the organ; interview Clayton; and accompany a hilarious silent film comedy. This entertaining night will counter any thoughts that sports and music arenâ€™t a great mix!
This benefit performance will raise funds for the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lafayette. Meanwhile, the Mighty Wurlitzer needs an updated computer operating system, and a new â€œperchâ€ under the left side box where the instrument will be more visible and more accessible, thus heard more often by an appreciative public.
Tickets will be $15, all kids 16-under admitted free of charge.Â Contact the Long Center box office. http://longpac.org/ The program is set for Friday night, January 15 at 7 p.m.Â There will be an autograph session at the Long Centerâ€™s St.John Pavilion following the one-hour program.

Thank you to the members of the Lafayette Exchange Club for donating $115,000 to lead the Beck Lane Boys and Girls Club Expansion.
Weâ€™ve had a need to service more kids, and we needed more space. And so we have worked with the Lafayette Exchange Club, they stepped up and made this big donation,â€ said Board President Reid Murtaugh. The expansion will allow for an arts and crafts room, and a multipurpose room for the kids. Itâ€™s going to help with homework and study programs along with small group and club programs. Construction is set to start in the spring of 2016, and the goal is to be finished by the start of school in August.
