3 Doors Down Reveal Details of 10th Annual Better Life Foundation Concert
In 2003, rockers 3 Doors Down started The Better Life Foundation, whose mission 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. Each year, the band holds a benefit concert for the foundation, and the 2013 event takes place Nov. 16 at the Horseshoe Casino in Tunica, Miss.
Black Stone Cherry will open the show. General admission standing floor tickets are priced at $50, while general admission balcony tickets are $150 (which includes hors d'oeuvres and bar). Tickets go on sale Friday (Oct. 4) at 10AM local time through TicketMaster.
In addition to the concert, there are a whole weekend's worth of events planned. "This year marks the 10th anniversary of The Better Life Foundation and the weekend is going to be better than ever!" says singer Brad Arnold. "Thank you to all the fans and sponsors who continue to support the foundation and the amazing work that it does.”
The festivities begin Nov. 15th at 9:00AM with a sporting clay shoot at The Willows in Tunica, Miss. The annual "Ride for a Cause" motorcycle charity ride will be staged Nov. 16th. There will be a raffle for a custom motorcycle. For more information on the ride and raffle go here. A silent auction will also take place in the Horseshoe Hotel lobby Nov. 16 from 2PM until 4:45PM, featuring memorabilia from a wide range of musical artists and sports figures.
3 Doors Down released 'The Greatest Hits' last year, which included three new songs along with all nine of their No. 1 singles.
