Senior Services Plus in Alton holds its largest fund raising event of the year this Saturday. It's called Feed the Need and features the music of the 1970's with a band called the Shagadelics out of Chicago. The money raised from the event will go to help offset the expenses of the Meals on Wheels Program that serves more than 600 seniors in the Alton area and beyond each day.
SSP Community Services Director Margaret Lanier says they cover a much larger area than the River Bend:
The concert is this Saturday June 9 from 6-10pm at the Alton Riverfront Amphitheater, with pre-concert events and contests starting at 4:00. Tickets are $10 in advance at Senior Services Plus, or $15 at the gate.
