Multi-platinum group 3 Doors Down
recently held their 4th annual "The Better Life Foundation" Concert at the Hard Rock Casino & Hotel in Biloxi, MS with musical friends, Sara Evans
and Musik Mafia members Jon Nicholson, Big Kenny (of Big & Rich
), Shannon Lawson & Randy Hauser, and raised over $200,000 to benefit children's charities along the Gulf Coast area.
"To be able to be a part of 'The Better Life Foundation,' is truly a privilege for me," said band member Matt Roberts. "Over the past four years the foundation has been able to touch the lives of many along the Gulf Coast, my life included. I've truly learned what it means to give back to the community that has given so much to us. The annual benefit concert has been a great success and a joy to be a part of. This has simply been because of the people who have come out to support each year and enable us to continue to reach the goal of helping others."
The mission of The Better Life Foundation is all encompassing, to make positive changes in the lives of children, whether that be food, shelter or medical assistance to name a few. Each and every year the foundation works to raise funds to donate to various organizations and hospitals they believe will help them further this cause.
