LA CROSSE, Wis. -

The new performing arts center in La Crosse will be named after Don and Roxanne Weber and their family.

La Crosse Performing Arts Center (LPAC) Board of Directors said the center will be named in honor of them for their generous support and commitment to the project.  The name of the building will be the Weber Center for the Performing Arts.

Don Weber, founder and CEO of Logistics Health Incorporated (LHI), gave the initial land donation for the new performing arts center in 2010.

"Naming the building was a fitting tribute to the family that has supported the project since the beginning, and simply put, without their support, this project would not have happened," said LPAC President Chuck Roth. "Our community will enjoy this magnificent facility for generations to come thanks to the Webers and many other generous benefactors who believed in this unique collaboration."

The Weber Center for the Performing Arts is an $8 million facility with a 450-seat main theatre, a 100-seat black box theatre, classroom space and offices. It’s a collaborative venue supporting the missions of La Crosse Community Theatre and Viterbo University.

On Sunday, January 20, there will be an open house of the new Weber Center. The event runs from 1-3 p.m. and includes tours of the facility.
