Senior Services Plus in Alton holds its largest fundraising event of the year later today. It's called Feed the Need and this year features the music of country music superstar John Michael Montgomery. The money raised from the event will go to help offset the expenses of the Meals on Wheels Program that serves more than 700 seniors in the Alton area and beyond each day.
SSP spokesman Stacey Loveland says it will be a full evening of entertainment.
