Rockers 3 Doors Down performed a charity gig at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi, on Saturday night, December 6, to raise money for their Better Life Foundation.

The show marked the fifth time the Jackson County-based band – whose hits include Kryptonite – has held the annual concert, with proceeds going to Mississippi victims of Hurricane Katrina.

“Well it’s always great to be back on the coast and especially during the holiday season, and this is our fifth event for the foundation,” said guitarist Matt Roberts. “We’re excited to be, here to get it done and have a great show tonight.”

The concert included an auction of rock memorabilia and items such as an Army National Guard themed Harley Davidson. The band also met 15-year-old Kaleb Miller as part of a Make-A-Wish Foundation wish, and donated $10,000 to the Boys' and Girls' Club of South Mississippi.

The mission of The Better Life Foundation is to make a positive change in the lives of children in need of food, shelter and medical assistance, and to enhance the lives of children and young adults with special needs. The money that is raised is distributed to organizations and hospitals that offer children a better life in which they can develop their potential, achieve their goals, and, become caring and responsible adults.
