Upper Alton Association to present Souper Saturday

Area businesses to bring on their best soup to see who walks away with the best tasting soup

The Upper Alton Association invites the public to attend Souper Saturday on Jan. 25 from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at Senior Services Plus, 2603 N. Rodgers Ave., Alton.

This is Upper Alton Association’s first fundraising event of 2020. Proceeds from this fundraiser are used to spruce up and maintain the Upper Alton Area. The association along with the Alton Fire Department is responsible for displaying the American Flag on federal holidays. In order to help beautify the Upper Alton area the association manages the floral hanging baskets and hosts two litter clean ups. The Upper Alton Association also holds the “Rockin’ with Robert” concert series in the summer at the Robert Wadlow Statue. For a calendar of future events, visit

Guests who attend the soup event will be supporting a non-profit, Dream Home Charities. Those who bring in at least one can of soup will receive a free dessert.

Last year the event raised 175 cans of soup.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance at Senior Services Plus for $8. For more information contact Jamie Ruyle at or call (618) 466-0100.
