SAGA COMMUNICATIONS Hot AC KSTZ (STAR 102.5)/DES MOINES will kick off "Combat Hunger" week by hosting a private performance by MATT NATHANSON on MONDAY, NOVEMBER 17th. All invited guests were selected through the STAR 102.5 e-mail club and were asked to donate sacks of groceries or make a monetary donation to gain admission to the show.
"The current state of our economy has made it incredibly tough on the Food Bank of IOWA and when MATT heard about STAR 102.5’s Combat Hunger, he wanted to help," PD SCOTT ALLEN said.
